Wink Murder game rules

The principle is very simple. Have the children form a circle, take 2 paces back and sit cross-legged. The adult will then designate “a detective”. The child should then stand aside so as not to hear and see what is happening …

During this time, you choose a child from among those seated in the round who will act as “the murderer”. The latter will have to “kill” these victims by discreetly winking at them so as not to be spotted by the detective…
The detective returns and the game begins. The children must look at the killer to see if he does not wink at them, but discreetly so as not to be spotted… When the killer winks at a child, the child concerned pretends to collapse and lies down on the ground… And the game continues so on. The detective must find who the killer is before all the children are dead.

Once the murderer is discovered, he becomes the detective and a new child is appointed to make the murderer…
