That old game, I played it in grade school. A circle of chairs, say 10 chairs, for 11 people.
And the music starts, and we all walk in a circle around the chairs. Until the music stops. Then we dash about to sit on one of the chairs and thereby claim it. We can sit! We have a chair! Ha!
There’s one person left standing. They do not get a chair and are out of the game.
This goes on, subtracting a chair each time, until there is one chair left. As the music starts, two people walk in a circle around the chair and when the music stops, well, we have a winner! Someone gets the chair! And all the rest are left out.
It’s a pretty strange game, come to think of it. Though if I recall, it was kind of fun, too.
