Bli'ndman's Buff. n.s. A play in which some one is to have his eyes covered, and hunt out the rest of the company.
Disguis'd in all the mask of night,
We left our champion on his flight:
At blindman's buff to grope his way,
In equal fear of night and day. Hudibras, p. iii. c. ii.
He imagines I shut my eyes again; but surely he fancies I play at blindman's buff with him; for he thinks I never have my eyes open. Stillingfleet's Defence of Disc. on Romish Idolatry.
