Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





This game is played with smooth stones about the size of a butter
dish. A target is marked on the sand or on any smooth piece of ground,
or if played on the grass the target must be marked with lime similar
to marks on a tennis court. The outside circle of the target should
be six feet in diameter, and every six inches another circle described
with a piece of string and two pegs for a compass.

The object of the game is to stand at a stated distance from the
"enihan," or target, and to toss the "habs" as in the game of quoits.
The player getting the best score counting from the inside ring or
bull's-eye wins the game.
