ring game
 n.— «Dances were often held at ranch houses, but many Baptists opposed dancing to music. Still wanting to dance, Bill and his friends solved this dilemma by participating in what was known as “ring games.” As in square dancing, ring games included someone who called out dancing instructions that couples followed, often at an increasingly quicker pace.» —“Pie Town childhood was true West story” Valencia County News-Bulletin (Belen, New Mexico) June 21, 2008.
