These rules are for a group of people. As director, I will be playing and stopping the sound of music and removing chairs from the circle.
1. You bring one chair to the table
2. Evenly space your chair with the other chairs brought by other people around the table in one large circle.
3. Sit in your chair
4. When music starts to play, stand up. Step away and push your chair under the table. Turn to your left.
5. Following the person to your left, begin walking in a single line with the group around the table in a circle.
6. When the music stops, pull out the chair closest to you and sit down. If there is not a chair available to you, you must leave the group.
7. Repeat steps 4-6 until there is only one chair and one person left remaining.
I am spelling out the rules of a preexisting, culturally ingrained game -- musical chairs. I'm curious to see how these written rules are understood by people familiar with the game vs understood by people completely new to the game. Or if the game is known with slightly different rules across cultures, in which case, rule additions, subtractions, and interpretations may be applied subconsciously.
