PLUG IN THE RING

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





This is the universal game that boys play with tops. A ring six feet
in diameter is described on the ground and each player puts a top
called a "bait" in the centre. The baits are usually tops of little
value. The "plugger," however, is the top used to shoot with and as a
rule is the boy's choicest one. As soon as the players can wind their
tops they stand with their toes on the line and endeavour to strike
one of the baits in such a way as to knock it out of the circle and
still leave their own tops within the circle and spinning. If they
miss, the top must be left spinning until it "dies." If it fails to
roll out of the ring, the owner must place another bait top in the
ring, but if it leaves the circle he may continue shooting. It is
possible to play tops for "keeps," but, like marbles for "keeps," it
should be discouraged, as it is gambling.
