Flour Game

This is a Mongolian game that has some elements in common with with our Bobbing for Apples party game, but the similarities end with the fact that there is no water. Contestants stick their heads into a large bowl of flour and try to pull out prizes with their mouths. Here it is being played at a Halloween party, a holiday Mongolians are not normally aware of, except that this is an English Department at a university, and they are trying to teach students something about Americans.
