This game is played with a tetotum, marked 1. 2. 3. 4.; and from two to twelve persons may join in the amusement
Each player must be provided with twelve counters and a mark; each,mark varying in colour* that eveiy player may know their own.
Before they begin, each player must deposit four, counters into the bank.
When it has been agreed who shall begin the game, the first person having spun the tetotura, must place his mark upon the number corresponding with that which the tetotum presents uppermost. If a 1 turn up, he must place his mark upon Innocent Amusement, which the rule in the verse directs him to turn the tetotum again. If he should turn up a 3 the next turn, he must place his mark three numbers forward, which will be in Bridewell, which verse directs him to remain there while every other player turns the tetotum three times.
If any player be sent back, he must not act according to the directions of that figure ; he must
only go by the directions of the figure he last spun from ; nor must he, if he be directed to advance to any figure, act according to the directions of that figure, but must only go by the directions of the figure he last spun from.
If any player should turn up a number which would carry him beyond the Mansion of Bliss, as many numbers as he turns beyond it, so many he must place his mark back from the figure he spun from ; viz. If his mark be on False Friendship, and he should turn up a 3, he then will have spun 1 beyond the game, therefore he must place his mark back upon the Ship, which is 1 behind the figure he turned from, where he must remain till his turn come again.
If youth themselves wish to amuse, "
| Pray what sport then is better than this1: The^totum again they may turn,
It may lead to the mansion of bliss.
If prudence and wisdom you’d sought,
^ Your destruction you would not have found ; * You here for your folly must stay,
While the rest turn the totum twice round.
With patience adversity bear,
~ Keep your mind from anxiety free;
So wait till your turn come again,
And your fate may more fortunate be.
Reflect when you enter this place.
For here none but the guilty are found ; 4* While the rest of the play’rs turn thrice, In confinement you are to be bound.
Your mindve a w ish to improve,
± 'Then to Schbo'lybn fhay straightway proceed i *-* * deceive from the Batik counters four,
For th’ example to ethers you lead.
When the shepherd is e’er found alone,
0 To the Bank :he two .counters must pay ; *Then in future with care he’ll attend, That the flock can no more go astray.
What sight as more pleasing than this, To see brothers’ hearts jom’din one ; ;
' • Go, friendi to the Bank, and receive Four counters, which fairly you’ve won.
Whoever’s found feeding the swine, • q Will have time enough there to repent '■ While the rest of the play’rs turn thrice* And reflect on file time he an i spent,
To%’im who 'makes ,peace shall »be joy, q From the^Bk;be'4wo-«ounters-inayAq And turn the tetotum twice more;
This amends for his goodness will make.
All those whoh’e foundfighting must pay |0 A counter to every player;
* A scene so disgraceful asfhis,
©o in future avoid, with alhcare.
Who’s found in the school, may advance Seven steps for his diligence there ; . .
Rewarded he further shall be,
With a counter from every play’r.
CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. Who joins-in this sporbshall repent,
| ^ They the game shal 1 begin o’er again ;
* For who, but a brute, would rejoice To behold the poor beast in such pain.
Since none but the good are found here,
13. Where love and humanity reign;
Claim a counter from ev’ry play’r, Then wait till your turn come again.
To Bridewell you now must repair,
14. Stealing fruit is a crime, beyond doubt; The totum twice round shall be spun, After which you’ll have leave to come out.
All those who their parents obey, .
Must a counter demand from each play’r ;
* The totu m again they m ay turn,
For their duty, attention, and. care.
The prodigal son must go back To wait on the Swine in the Field; Imprudence has brought him to this, To which he now humbly must yield.
Thou ’rt welcome again to this home, ' 17.! felt for and pitied thy fate;
Two counters receive from the bank,
Pm glad thou return’st not too late.
To rob the poor birds of their young,
Of their.eggs, or their nests, is unkind ;
*■ Retrace then your steps whence you came, And a counter to each you are fin’d.
Whoever relieves the distress’d,
1 ^ Rewarded they surely shall be,
With a counter from ev’ry play’r,
And turn round the totum times three.
The truant to School must return,
^ For such negligence can’t be look'd o’er; * And stay while each player turns twice, Then, perhaps, he’ll be guilty no more.*
The!sailorimay go to bis Ship, q 1 The bulwark of this happy isle,
* And from the bank two counters fake, For his bravery, danger, and toil.
The swearer committed shall ibe *2<2 To "Bridewell, while every player Has turn’d the tfetoturn thrice round, Then in future he’ll surely beware.
The blind our protection require, q o So each play’r must a counter him give; * For none but the worthless refuse A poor being, like “this, to relieve.
A gamester the honest detest,
He the innocent strives to deceive; 24.a counter-to eachhe must pay,
And be thahkfiil for such a reprieve.
Fidelity’s truly display’d,
By the emblem of constancy here; For your choice a counter demand, Politely, from every player.
The mimic now dearly Shall pay, qQ For such tricks none e’er acthut a fool; * A counter to each [he must pay,
And go back to reform to ‘the School.
With firmness temptation'avoid, qyj As the sensitive plant doth the hand; The totum again you may turn,
But a counter from each first demand.
Whoe’er this bad character bears,
To each player a counter-must give ;
** ‘And go backto Brotherly Love,
AHiere a'lessOri they soon will receive.
AH those who their parents assist, ^g.When unable to toil any more,
Shall turn the tetotum again,
And receive from the bank counters four.
Base bribes you must always avoid,
00 Or you’ll perish before you ’re aware;
Retrace back your steps whence you came, And, in future, proceed with more care.
The ship may proceed on its course,
Q So the totum twice more you may spin;
* And when you your voyage have finish’d, All the rest in their turn may begin.
Your friendship Lfind ’s not sincere, qq As the more I’m distress’d you me shun ;
For treatment like this, you shall stay c While the totum twice round hath been spun.
Retrace now your steps whence you came, 00 O’er the bridge you now cannot proceed ;
* The mansion’s your object, no doubt, The way to it’s different, indeed.
Who enters the mansion of bliss,
0^- Will have cause to rejoice at his claim ; * So well has he travell’d thro’ life,
He has happily ended the game.
