Game Instructions

This game is played with two people who face each other. There are two distinct clapping motions, the "Up Down Clap" and the "Triple Clap".

The "Up Down Clap" is done while reciting each line: Players begin by raising their left hands, with their palms down, and lowering their right hands, with their palms up. They clap by bringing down their left hands and bringing up their right hands, till each players' hands meet those of their counterparts' moving in the opposite direction. They then reverse hands and clap the other way, beginning with right hands high and left hands low.

The "Triple Clap" is done between each line of the first verse only. Players simply clap their own hands three times.
