Juego de Prenda
Juego de Prenda -is a Spanish phrase that means “Game of Penalty” in English.
There is no limit to the number of players that can play. Players sit in a circle with the leader in the middle. Each player adopts a name of a tree or flower that is given by the leader. The leader recounts the story of a lost bird that was owned by a king. He or she says, “The bird of the king was lost yesterday. Did you find it, Ylang-Ylang?” The player who adopted the name of the Ylang-Ylang tree at once answers that he or she has not found it, so the leader continues to ask the other “trees” whether the bird has hidden in them. If a player cannot answer after the third count, he or she is made to deposit a thing he or she owns to the leader until the leader has been able to gather a lot of things from the members.
Each one can only regain his or her belonging by reciting a prayer or a verse. Once a player has complied with the penalty, the item that he or she has deposited is returned to him or her. A variation of the penalty might be truth or consequence.
