Gækkebreve is a traditional Danish game played by children. You create a Gækkebreve by cutting into folded paper to make a pattern. Then you write a small poem or verse on it. You leave space for the recipient to guess who sent it. For example, for the name Dorthe, you would leave six dots for them to fill in. The person then must guess who sent it and if they guess correctly, they get a chocolate egg. If they cannot guess, the sender gets a chocolate egg. When children play it with adults, the adults charitably never guess correctly, ensuring the child always receives the chocolate egg.
