Meaning: Give Away A Secret


 While also one of the best preschool games ever, Spilling The Beans is believed to have originated in Ancient Greece.  Back then when there was an issue that needed to be decided  a vote was held.  White Beans were a “Yes” and Black Beans were a “No” vote.  If the vote collector dropped the jar and a black bean was seen, the vote was ruined.
