The game contains 1 King, 10 Knights, 6 Throwing Sticks and 4 Markers. The object of the game is to knock over all the opponent's knights and then the king, using the throwing sticks. The playing field is marked out using the 4 markers, 10m ( 32 foot ) long by 5 ( 16 foot ) wide is the ideal size. Place the king in the centre of the playing field, with 5 knights placed at regular intervals along each baseline. The thrower always stands somewhere on his/her own baseline. The sticks must be thrown vertically and underarm. One person from each team throws a stick as close to the king as possible, but without hitting it. The team with the stick closest to the king starts. The aim now is to knock over as many of the opposing team's knights as possible, using the 6 throwing sticks.
