Play in a circle

The players are seated in a circle.  One player is chosen to lead the game, and s/he removes his/her chair from the circle.  The object is for the player to steal" a seat from another player, and sit in it.  To do this, the leader uses three commands:


Shinui Yemin-   Everyone must shift one seat to the right.

Shinui Smol-     Everyone must shift one seat to the left.

Shinui Shinui- Everyone must run to any other chair and sit in it (except the two chairs on either side of him/her).


The leader can use any command to gain a seat.  When s/he gets a seat, the player left without a seat becomes the new leader and play continues.
