Helicopter

Helicopter

Origin

The word helicopter is adapted from the French language hélicoptère, coined by Gustave Ponton d'Amécourt in 1861, which originates from the Greek helix

How to play

Helicopter is devilishly simple to play, when you see a helicopter you say "hélicoptère" in a french accent before your opponent which instantly wins the game. 

Not saying "hélicoptère" in a french accent does not count unless you are french, in which case you have to say "Choppa" in an Essex accent.

cow

Cows

Origin

According to a friend of mine the game was invented whilst on a swimming holiday in Lithuania driving between lakes.

How to play

Cows may sound similar to hélicoptère but no, it is very very different and must NEVER be confused. To play cows with one or many players you simply drive or walk along and when you see some cows you say

"Cows!!! I saw them first"

This is a very specific phrase and any divination or abbreviation is illegal.

You can not claim the same cows twice in the same day.
