On 'GO', the object is to break as many balloons as possible, by sitting on them! When a person breaks a

The scorekeeper then runs up to the person whose hand is in the air, marks a point down on his tally
sheet. The player then tries to break another balloon and earn more points.
When all balloons are broken, scores are added up and a winner is declared.
Break the balloons by putting them between the knees and squeezing them until they break.
