These deaf boys play this game more often. The boy with the tree branch in the middle gives a visual sign to all players to begin to walk: he turns the tree branch above his head until suddenly he brings it down. Then he walks towards the boys who all are standing in a “freeze” position. They may not move at all, not even with your eyelids and also smiling is forbidden. When you do and noted, you’re out!
