This game differs from Double Club Bowls only in the object of
the play. In Single Club Bowls the object is to knock over one
Indian club which stands alone. In Double Club Bowls the object
is to bowl the ball or bean bag between two upright Indian
clubs without knocking them over.

Any kind of ball or bean bag may be used for this game. If there be
few players, one Indian club is set up for each player, all clubs
being widely separated and on a given line. At from ten to thirty feet
from this club line a second line is drawn, on which the players must
stand to play. The players all slide the bag over the floor or roll
the ball, at once, each player scoring one when he knocks over his
Indian club. The clubs are then replaced, the balls or bags gathered
up, and the players return to the starting line and bowl again.

The player wins who first scores twenty-five or fifty, as may be
determined before the game opens.

Where there is a large number of players, the same form of play is
used with the players in relay formation; that is, they should be
divided into groups of equal numbers, each group lining up in single
file before the starting line, and each member of a group bowling in
turn for the club. After each player has bowled, he should replace the
club and bring back the ball or bean bag to the next player. In this
form of the play it is not necessary for the different rows to throw
simultaneously, unless that be desired as a question of order or to
facilitate the scoring. The row or team which makes the highest score
