How to Play
- Players form a circle and stand 6 feet away from each other.
- One player starts the game by putting one hand across their stomach and says, “ah,” to someone on his or her right.
- That player will put one hand over his or her head and say, “so,” to someone on his or her right.
- The next player will point to someone across the circle and say, “co.”
- If the wrong command is said the circle says, “yahm zing,” and that player walks around the circle. The last two players win!
