Select a number of small fruit baskets, all the same size, and have a
box of checkers handy. Suppose you have five, on the bottom of one
mark 20, on another 15, on two, 5; and on the other, 0. Place the
baskets in a row on the floor so their numbers cannot be seen.

Choose sides, giving the red checkers to the leader of one side and
the black checkers to the other. One side lines up about 10 ft. away
from the baskets, the leader giving each player a checker; if there
are any left he keeps them and has the privilege of throwing
them. Each one in turn throws his checker into any basket, trusting to
luck that they fall into a basket with a number on it.

When all have played the leader turns up each basket to see its number
and counts the number of checkers thrown into it. If there were two in
basket No. 20, it would count 40; if 3 in one basket No. 5, it would
be 15; if four in the other basket No. 5, 20; and if there were 3 in
basket 0, it would count nothing. Thus the score for that side is
75. The players on the other side line up and play as the others
did. The order of the baskets must be changed by someone not of that
side, so no one knows which is which. Their score is added up.

The game continues until a certain number, 300 or 500, has been
reached. The side scoring that number of points first is victorious.
