Tambem tem esta brincadeira que é utilizada para escolher uma cirança como "it" em jogos como hot rice (bola queimada), hide and seek (esconde esconde) etc.
To play "Spuds" (a choosing game, but a ritual in itself) players would stand in a line, or circle, with their clenched fists held in front of them at waist level. One person counted off, hitting the other children's fists in turn with their own, chanting the following: "One potato, two potatoes, three potatoes, four; Five potatoes, six potatoes, seven potatoes, more. O-U-T spells out." When the letter 'T' was called, that person put one hand behind their back. The game carried on until only one 'spud' remained. That person was 'it.'
