That game reminds me of one that I saw played by adults at a church gathering about 55 years back - I was too young to play but it made an impression on me. Everyone sits in a circle and is given a number.
The leader starts off saying:
"The priest of the Parish has lost his considering cap. Some say this and some say that, but I say number (1) 1,2,3, down"
The person with whichever number has been called must answer before the leader says "down", with
"I sir?"
"Yes, you sir!"
"No, not I sir."
"Then who sir?"
"Number (5) 1,2,3,down."

If the person whose number has been called is too slow (or the 1,2,3, is too quick) the game starts again, with the slow person having to say the leader's words. I don't remember how it ended but it was hilarious, watching the 'grown-ups' struggling to keep up.
