Jocul portocalelor Oranges Game
The players are numbered from 1 up. The leader begins the game by calling any number. He will say, for instance: "I need seven oranges". The child whose number is called must answer at once with another number, e.g. "Why seven and not ten?" to which the player no. 10 must reply immediately with another number: "Why ten and not two?" And so on. Those who fail to answer immediately or call a number, which is out of the game, are dropped out.
The game may continue until all but one player have been eliminated. To help the children, the numbers givens to the players are written on cardboard at the beginning of the game and they are crossed out one by one, when the respective player is dropped from the game.

Jocul portocalelor

Jucãtorii sunt numerotati de la 1 în sus. Conducãtorul jocului strigã un numãr din cele pe care le au jucãtorii. De exemplu, el poate spune: "Am nevoie de sapte portocale." Participantul cu numãrul 7 trebuie sã rãspundã: "De ce 7 si nu 10?", iar posesorul numãrului 10 continuã: "De ce 10 si nu 2?". Jocul continuã în acest mod. Copilul care nu dã imediat replica în joc iese afarã.
Jocul poate continua pânã când toti participantii sunt eliminati, cu exceptia ultimului, declarat învingãtor. Jocul poate fi organizat încã de la început prin împãrtirea de cartonase numerotate pentru fiecare jucãtor.
