Bean Bag Box

Source: Games For The Playground, Home, School And Gymnasium

_2 to 20 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium; schoolroom._

A small box measuring not less than six inches square should be
fastened inside of one about twice the size and that in a third,
leaving at least six inches margin between the boxes. This is set up
on a slight incline with a stone or other object under its further
end, or tipped up against the wall. From ten to twenty feet away from
this a throwing line is drawn. Each player is provided with five bean
bags and takes his place in turn on the throwing line, throwing all
five bags at each turn. A bag thrown into the smallest box scores five
points, one into the middle box ten points, and into the outside box
fifteen points. The player who first scores one hundred wins.

This is a very popular game, and the paraphernalia for it may be
easily improvised.
