Many traditional games involve a lot of intricate rules or elaborate equipment. Simple games often require good physical co-ordination or strength to win. This game is different since it does not need any special equipment or dexterity to win. It can be played by adults and children of all ages, using nothing more than a handful of pebbles.

1. To play the game, one player selects a number of pebbles and hides them in his closed hand.

2. Each of the other players takes turns guessing how many pebbles are in the player's hand.

3. The winner is the player who guesses correctly. He then has the next turn hiding the pebbles in his hand.
