Marble Coin Pebble and Jack Games Seeking For Gold

( Marble Coin Pebble and Jack, Physical Contest )

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.
