_5 to 15 players._

_Out of doors; seashore._

A handful of small pebbles is collected, and the players sit on the
ground in a circle. One of the players scatters the pebbles on the
ground in the center of the circle, as jackstones are scattered. This
player then draws a line with his finger between any two of the
pebbles, and tries to snap one of these two so that it will hit the
other, as marbles are snapped at one another. If successful in hitting
the pebble, the same player has a second turn, keeping each time the
two pebbles hit. Should this player miss, another gathers up the
pebbles, scatters them, draws a line between any two of them, snaps
them, etc.

The one wins who at the close of the game has the largest number of
pebbles. It will be seen that a small number of players is better for
this game than a large group. Nuts may be used instead of pebbles.

This game is played by children in China.
