All players put their hands on the table in a circle. The arms are crossed with those of the neighbours. It is essential that the circle is closed. Now one starts clapping his hand on the table. Then it goes around in order of hands. Thus, each hand claps once on the table. Now go around in circles as quickly as possible. When a person double claps, the direction is changed. If a hand claps incorrectly or claps too late, that hand is eliminated and removed from the table. Whoever has no hand left in the game has lost. If a hand is missing in the circle, it is simply played across the gap.
Variations: If there is no suitable table, a circle can be formed on the floor and clapped on the floor. A chair circle with clapping on the thighs of the neighbors is also possible.
