This Halloween Game and MANY others can be found in the following book available from

Games For Hallowe’en

by Mary E. Blain

In this game the seeker for a prize is guided
from place to place by doggerel’s as the fol-
lowing, and is started on his hunt with this
rhyme :

” Perhaps you’ll find it in the air ;
If not, look underneath your chair.”

Beneath his chair he finds the following:

” No, you will not find it here ;
Search the clock and have no fear.”

Under the clock he finds:

” You will have to try once more ;
Look behind the parlor door.”

Tied to the door-knob he discovers:

” If it’s not out in the stable
Seek beneath the kitchen table.”

Under the kitchen table he finds another
note, which reads:

” If your quest remains uncertain,
You will find it ‘neath a curtain.”

And here his quest is rewarded by finding
the prize.
