    SLIDING GAME (MARBLES)


    The anthropologist, David Mandelbaum, recorded this game, which was enjoyed by the Cree women during the winter season.


    EQUIPMENT


    An equal number of marbles for each player. Long ago, the rounded tips of buffalo horns were used as marbles


    HOW TO PLAY


    Clear an area of snow about five feet long to make a smooth slope.


    Ice the snow and make 12 small holes at the lower end.


    Give the holes different scoring values.


    The players take turns sliding the marbles from the higher end of the slope, and score according to the value of the hole into which the marbles fall.>>>>>http://www.manataka.org/page185.html
