to catch the can


All players form a circle around one player in the center. Each person on the circle is given a number. The center player stands with the cane upright, holding it with one finger. Without warning, he lifts the finger from the cane and calls out a number at the same instant. The person assigned that number rushes forward and tries to grab the cane before it hits the floor. If he catches it, he becomes the center player. If he fails to catch it, he returns to the circle.
