- 1 penny (or nickle) per player plus 1
- A piece of bamboo or dowel that is 12 – 18 inches
- If playing inside
- flag stand (or Christmas tree stand)
- skipping rope or string to mark a circle
Drive the bamboo into the ground or put it in the stand. Mark a circle around the pole of approximately a 1 m diameter. Balance one coin on top of the pole.
Girls take turns trying to knock the pole coin off with their coin. A point is only scored if the coin lands outside the circle.
