    Traditional Children's Games:

    Topfschlagen (Hit the Pot)

    Carolyn Behne from Germany

    In Germany, small children play a game called Topfschlagen (Hit the Pot). It is a lot of fun. One person is it and has to close his eyes. Somebody else puts a little present under the pot and hides it somewhere in the room.

    The person who is it has to take a cooking spoon, get on the floor and look for the pot. He has to keep banging the cooking spoon on the floor. When he finds the pot, he can take the present, and someone else is it.

    In Germany, all the children really love to play this game. When I was a child, we always played it when there was a birthday. It is a game for very small children. They like to play it because they get a little present.
    Gib einfach das deutsche Wort ein und stell die Google-Suche nur auf "englisch" (kannst auch klingonisch wählen). Gibt natürlich auch andere Übersetzungen: strike the pot, oder pan-beating, aber das hier klingt doch seriös. Wenn's Carolyn Behne from Dschermäni sagt...

    Hm. Weiss denn jemand, ob man bei solchen Suchspielen im Englischen auch mit "kalt, kälter", bzw. "warm, wärmer", etc. anfeuert?

    Danke! "Cold, colder" it shall be, then.

    Carlys Antwort könnte auch nur bedeuten "ja, wissen wir" ;-)
