The jame itself is very Tery simple. Sbnrt adventurous -soul is "if and Judei a.way, be- ing out over the house.- The other members of the party proceed to find the missing link. When you find ''it1 you hide' along side as-quietly as you would slip Into church 'late. Add -so the party' packs away like "Sardines."
