what's the time, Mr Wolf (uncountable)

  1. A children's game in which one player takes the role of the wolf and the others repeatedly ask him what the time is, taking steps forward accordingly (so "three o'clock" means three steps forward); finally the wolf calls "dinner time!" and chases the other players, a player becoming the wolf for the next round if caught.
