SPEARING PEANUTS.

Source: Games for Everybody
Category: GAMES FOR ADULTS





Fill a cup with peanuts, two of which are blackened with ink on one
end.

The guests play one at a time. No. 1 sits down by a table, empties the
cup of peanuts in a pile on it and is given a hatpin with which she
spears the peanuts one at a time without disturbing the pile, and
places them back in the cup. A few minutes is allowed each player;
when the time is up, the peanuts in the cup are counted, the blackened
ones count ten apiece and the plain ones, one.

Tally is kept for each player and a suitable prize is given to the one
who succeeded in securing the largest score.




Next: PEANUT HUNT AND SCRAMBLE.
