Note: On calls such as Magic Line In Roll Circulate, Out Roll Circulate, Here Comes The Judge, Sock It To Me, those doing the Circulate should identify themselves by making a noise (say 'here' or 'me') and raising their hand. Those doing the Circulate do a normal Circulate since they are moving from an End position to another End position; the Others Flip one position within their Magic Line toward the End doing the Circulate. EN: 60
