The host secretly chooses one player to be the “Sandman.” At the start of the game, players are told to move around the room or playing area and greet each other by shaking hands and saying their names. When the Sandman greets someone, he/she winks at at that player. The player who has been winked at must then count slowly to five before yawning, stretching, and falling to sleep by lying on the floor or ground or slumping in a chair. The Sandman continues to put players to sleep, avoiding letting others know his/her identity.  The group tries to catch the Sandman in the act of winking. Anyone who can guess the identity of the Sandman shouts “Stop!” and accuse the suspect of being the Sandman. If the player guesses incorrectly, he/she must fall asleep. If the guess is correct, the game ends. The game can also end if the Sandman puts everyone else to sleep.
