  1. Buzz is a very amusing game which can be played sitting around the fire at night. One player places the palms of his hands together, with the thumbs resting on the fore-fingers. Then a spoon is placed over the thumbs and another player holds the tip of the spoon and makes a buzzing noise with his mouth, and unaware to the other player, he lifts the spoon and gives him a tap on the knuckles. The other player must watch this and avoid it if he can.
