This game is just for two and is similar to Tit-tat-to. Make a drawing
like the illustration and the game is ready.

[Illustration: A drawing of a stack of twelve rectangles topped with
an half-circle. These are numbered sequentially from the bottom.]

No. 1 chooses a figure which No. 2 must try to guess by indicating
with a pencil dot or mark at the side of the different spaces, until
he has guessed the number chosen.

The numbers in the different spaces marked by No. 2 are added to his
score; and those unmarked are added to No. 1.

Suppose No. 1 chooses 13, and No. 2 marks first 4, then 10, 9, 5, 2,
and finally 13, the sum of all these (43) will be No. 2's score, while
the sum of the numbers unmarked (48) belongs to No. 1.

The game may be played as long as is desirable, but it is more
exciting to have a fixed number, such as 300 or 500.
