Everyone is seated in a circle. One person stands in the middle of the circle, holding a lid.
The person in the middle (with the lid) begins by walking around inside the circle. They then take the hand of someone of the opposite sex and lead them around. The second person then takes the hand of the opposite sex and so on. This continues until the person with the lid "drops the lid" and everyone runs to a seat.
The person left without a seat picks up the lid and the game begins again.
