The Ministers Cat...

Variant: Monsignors Cat...

Arrange all players in a circle. They may stand or be seated.

 

Designate one person as the starter. All participants must clap their hands in time as the first player chants, The ministers cat is a _____ cat, inserting an adjective that begins with the letter A, as in, The ministers cat is an Angry cat. Proceeding in a clockwise direction each successive player takes up the chant but inserts a different adjective which also begins with the letter A, for instance, The ministers cat is an Awful cat. The adjective must be spoken in the correct cadence with the chant.

 

Eliminate a player from the game when he fails to supply an appropriate adjective within the normal cadence of the chant, or if he repeats an adjective already used. The player must then move out of the circle.

 

Resume play with the next player. Once the play has gone full circle the starter repeats the chant using an adjective which begins with the letter B to describe the ministers cat. With each succeeding round the starter moves on to the next successive letter in the alphabet. Play continues until only 1 contestant remains. She is then declared the winner of the game.

Albert Finney received a Golden Globe Award for best actor in a musical or comedy for his portrayal of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge in the 1970 film, Scrooge. In the film, while being escorted by the Ghost of Christmas Present, Scrooge visits a Christmas party being hosted by his nephew, Fred, and his young bride. The party-goers all engage in a delightful game called, The Ministers Cat. For large gatherings of friends, it is still a great way to create fun and excitement.
