Children’s Game

Many Hungarian games for children are combined with folk songs and dance. Forfeits is an increasing-decreasing game played with a large group. The children sing and create a moving circle. They hold hands and move in the same direction. A leader counts out, or calls out, moves. In Forfeits, a child who is leading the circle during their turn and makes a mistake, such as moving the wrong direction or tripping, forfeits his turn and falls out of the circle. The child is allowed back into the circle at the end of the game for the last round.
