Posted On: 2009-01-10
- Type: Six
- Equipment: Seven stones, or other objects
The Cubs are divided into four equal groups, with one group sitting in each corner. The seven stones are put in the centre, with a square drawn round them, and a small square in front of each team. Each Cub in the team is given a number, from 1 onwards. The Leader then calls out a number, say, number 2. The four number 2's run to the centre and pick up a stone, and bring it to their own square. Only one stone may be picked up at a time, and it must be placed in the square, not thrown. They then return to the centre and pick up another stone. Then they may also take from their opponents squares. The continues until one group has three stones in their square. A point is scored, and the game commences again with a new number.
