A children's game. One youngster or a responsible adult faces the wall, while all the others start on the other side of the room and tiptoe towards him (her). At any point Grandmother can choose to tergiversate, whereupon any kid spotted moving has to return to the far wall and start again from there. Like all good games it is freighted with intimations. To me it smells of petrifaction, wolves and death.
