_10 to 30 players._

_Out of doors; barn._

This game is suitable for a barn; the greater the number of open doors
and windows available in the barn the better.

The players are divided into two equal parties, one of which personate
defenders, and take their places in the barn, with the doors and
windows open. The other party are the besiegers, and are stationed
outside the barn. The fighting is done by means of weeds specially
prepared for the purpose. The weeds commonly called redroot or
iron-weed are very good for this. The stems, measuring about a foot
and a half in length, are stripped except for a small leaf or tuft of
leaves at one end. On the opposite end the root is cut away so as to
leave only a small knob which will serve to weight the missile.

The game opens with each party provided with a pile of this
ammunition, which is thrown at the opponents through the doors and
windows of the barn. A player hit once with a dart is considered
"wounded," but may keep on playing. A player hit twice is "killed,"
and is out of the game. Each party must keep within its own bounds.

The party wins which has the fewest killed at the end of the game.

This was a favorite game with a group of Long Island boys, from
one of whom the author obtained it.
