There are many Victorian parlour games based around guessing the identity of a hidden person. Various means from examining ankles to listening to them impersonate animals are used, however Brat Sack brings a more dynamic edge to these games.
Players are paired up. One set leave the room whilst the remaining players are given a large hessian sack to climb into, the top of which can be loosely tied and then the sacks/players are distributed evenly about the room. The other players are then introduced back into the room and the race is on to find their partners and release them from their sack.
Variations include blindfolding all the seeking players and allowing the 'sacked' players to shout out pre-selected words to help them ( a la Kittiwake)
