Indoor Fun for Rainy
1- The Game of Spin-Spin
By Mrs. W. J. Standlee
HE game of " spin-spin," out-
lined below, cannot fail to
interest and amuse. Take a
large square board or a piece of pasteboard, and
chalk or mark with ink the design illustrated. The
size of circles must depend on the size of the board.
Circles of colored paper may be used if desired.
Now make a top from
an empty spool. Every
boy knows how. The top
is made with a piece of
stick about an inch long
and one end of an empty
10     -             spool, and may be spun
with the thumb and fore-
finger. Place the top on
the dot in the circle
marked 20 and spin. The
number of the line or
circle the top dies on is
PLAYED WITH A       the number you score.
HOME-MADE TOP        For instance, if in the cir-
cle or on the line marked
to, you score ten, and so on. If the top dies clear
over the line marked 5 you score nothing. The first
one to score one hundred wins the game. Any
number of children can play at a time.
The Game of 91
By Frank Hanson
T HERE should be a game board twenty inches
square giving a field two inches wide; each
square should measure an inch and a half and be
numbered. The articles used in playing may be
checkers or large buttons, but I would suggest
blocks of rubber about three-quarters of an inch
square. The mode of using these blocks is by snap-
ping them with the fingers, endeavoring, of course,
to make them fall upon certain numbers. When
the rubber does not fall upon a square the player
loses his turn. The object of the game is to score
ninety-one points and enter the goal on the next
move. Each player must confine his moves to one
of the four spaces indicated by the heavy lines.

FIELD        Ai    FIELD
Commence by placing a block in the field. Each
player makes one move, and any player may make
his first move upon any outside numbers he wishes.
The next player does likewise, and so the game
continues until it is finished.
Make your moves by placing your finger on the
board against your block, snapping it as nearly as
possible to where you wish it to be.
Should a player score sixty or any large number
of points and then get on one of the back numbers
he is put back as many points as the back number
indicates. For instance, if you have forty-five and
fall upon 12 BACK you will have to go back to
33. If a player at any time gets upon one of the
ring numbers he begins over again, having the
points indicated by the number to score, before he
can commence to count. Should a player get more
than ninety-one points he must go back to his last
number; thus, if you have eighty-eight and get upon
6 you must go back to 88. A player may - if his
score is too large-move upon a back number,
so that he may have another chance to secure the
numbers which will help him to win the game.
The Dot Game
By C. E. Ganse
HAVING formed a square or oblong of dots let
Hithe children, provided with pencils, begin by
joining consecutive dots,
but in such a way as to
prevent one another from
making a complete square.
For a while this is easy,
but presently the places
are so few where one can
mark without letting the
next player get a square
that careful search must
be taken to find a place.
Finally they are all gone.
The next player completes
a square, and, as a reward,
is allowed to join two
other dots. Very likely he
gets a second square, per-
haps several. When he can
get no more lie still must
join another pair of dots,
and that permits the fol-
lowing player to score.
When any one forms a
square he writes in it the
initial of his name, or other
distinguishing mark. By
this arrangement the score     TRY TO FORM
is readily counted.              SQUARES
