Children's Rhyme-Games - Neevie-neevie-nick-nack


"Neevie-neevie-nick-nack" A lottery game, and confined to boys, is of simple movement, but convenient in this--that only two players are required. They stand facing each other, the leader whirling his two closed fists, one containing a prize, the other empty. While he cajoles his opponent with the rhyme:-

Neevie-neevie-nick-nack:
Whilk hand will ye tak'
The richt ane or the wrang,
I'll beguile ye gin I can?

If he guesses correctly, he gains the prize. If he misses, he has to equal the stake. Until success falls to the second, the original player continues the lead.
