This Sheet is to be pinned up against the wall. Divide the Extinguishers amongst the players. Each player in turn stands opposite the Candle, about three yards distance, and after being blindfolded, walks slowly towards it and endeavours to extinguish the Candle by pinning the Extinguishers over the flame.
