put them in a row along the wall they get a ball and the first boy tries to put the ball into one of the caps. They stand about nine feet away from the caps. Whoever owns the cap that the ball was put into runs to the cap and lifts ball & fires it at one of the boys. Whatever boy he hits with the ball gets a stone put into his cap. The game continues the next boy throws the ball. The boy is not put out of the game till five stones are in his cap. This game goes on till there is only one boy left.
