Somebody elects to go out of the room, and in his absence the remainder of the party decides on a well-known proverb.  When the individual returns, it is his business to guess the proverb that has been chosen. 

The following assistance is afforded him. 

He turns to any individual he likes and asks a question. The answer must contain the first word of the proverb. 

Then he goes to another person and asks him something. The answer must contain the second word of the proverb. 

The questions and answers proceed in this way until all the words in the proverb have been mentioned to him in the answers. If the proverb consists of, say, six words and a seventh question is asked, the answer must contain the first word afresh. 

Thus the business goes round and round until the proverb is finally guessed. Here is a set of specimen questions and answers. The chosen proverb is " All that glitters is not gold ". 

1st question: Did you pick a proverb that I know? 

1st answer: I cannot say at ALL 

2nd question: Do you think I shall be a long time guessing it? 

2nd answer: THAT will depend upon you entirely. 

3rd question: When do you think I shall solve this proverb ? 

3rd answer: When the moon no longer GLITTERS 4th question: Do you like this game? 

4th answer: IS that a matter that concerns you? 

5th question: Do you like this party? 5th answer: It is NOT at all bad. 

6th question: Would you like to try your hand at gues sing ? 

6th answer: Not for all the GOLD in the Bank of England. 

it will be seen from above questions and answers that the reply containing the word GLITTERS affords an obvious clue. From this we may learn that a proverb to be really teasing should not contain any outstanding words. 

Here are some better examples: A stitch in time saves nine. Still waters run deep. Waste not, want not. Look before you leap. A cat may look at a king. It's a long lane that has no turning. Strike while the iron is hot. Watched pots never boil. One good turn deserves another.
