A group of children stands in a circle with a diameter of about thirty feet. The game leader throws a jack into the middle of the circle. Each child holds a bocce ball, a marble, a piece of gravel, or something similar. The children must take turns to try and throw their object so that it lands as close as possible to the jack. The three players whose objects are closest to the jack get points - the winner gets three, the second place finisher two, and the third place finisher gets one point. Whoever has the most points after the set number of rounds is the winner.
