by Ernest Thompson Seton

 The players are seated in a circle. One begins thus, "As I went to the Menagerie..." His neighbor to the right asks, "What did you see there?" He answers, "I saw a lion." 

The neighbor then turns to his right-hand neighbor and says, "I went to the Menagerie." The same question is then asked, "What did you see there?" The second player must then repeat the answer of the first, "I saw a lion," adding to it an animal of his own, "and a monkey." 

The game goes on in this way, each player putting the same question and answer of his neighbor and adding the name of another animal. 

"Pack the Trunk" may be played in a similar manner. Any article suitable or grotesque may be packed in the trunk.
