_2 to 30 or more players._
_Playground; gymnasium; schoolroom._
This game consists in throwing bean bags through holes in an inclined
board. The board should be preferably eighteen inches wide by three
feet long. Near the lower end of it should be cut a square hole about
the size of the bean bags. Higher up in the board a second hole about
three inches larger should be cut. The board should be slanted by
resting it against a wall or fence, or bracing one end of it in some
other way, so that it is at an angle of about forty-five degrees.
The players stand at a throwing line from ten to fifteen feet from the
board. Each player has five bag
or five may be used for the entire
group of players, the bags being recovered for each thrower in turn. A
bag thrown into the larger hole counts five; into the smaller hole
ten. The player wins who first scores one hundred.
Where there are a large number of players, it is desirable to have
more than one board, so that the players may be divided into several
groups and make the game more rapid.
