A sort of homemade miniatures game. Each player's units (infantry, cavalry, cannon) and the board terrain (hills, houses, trees) are made in a prescribed way from construction paper and household items including matchboxes, egg cartons, pencils etc.
The game is played on a 6' square cloth divided into a 9×9 grid, with some squares occupied by terrain. Players alternate turns moving all their units each turn — cavalry can move 3 squares per turn and other units 1, and infantry cannot enter squares with terrain.
The object is to destroy all the enemy infantry and cavalry using one's cannons. A cannon can be fired only when there are four friendly soldiers in the same square as it. To simulate the effect of firing a cannon, a player shoots a "bullet" of rolled-up paper directly over the cannon using a rubber band in his or her fingers. Any units which he or she knocks over are considered "destroyed" and removed from the game.
This game is from the book The KnowHow Book of Action Games.
