    name of a game

    Iím an English learner (a beginner) and I have a question, please help me.
    I want to know about the name of a game. The game is that you hide a small thing (it can be anything) in one of your hand (fist) and your friend (partner) must guess which one of your hands is full. If he could guess correctly then it's his turn to hide and you must guess. Itís a very simple game, and in my country itís very popular among children. But I donít know if there is such a game in English culture or not. Please, if there is, tell me the name of this game.

    I also found some names, but i don't know if they are correct or not. please tell me are there any games with this names?

    "full or empty"
    "null or score"
    "guess which hand"
    "find the target"


    Thanks

    I don't know if it has an accepted name. I'd use the third in your list.

    So would I. It's not really enough of an organized game to have a name; it usually starts by one player secreting something and proffering their two fists, accompanied by the challenge 'Guess which hand?' or just 'Which hand?'
