Conkers – An Old English School Yard Game
Conkers are the seeds from Horse Chestnut trees. They are usually found around September / October in the UK.
Make a hole through the middle of the conker and thread it on a string. Take it in turns to attack your opponent’s conker with yours (one swipe each). The winner is the person who successfully knocks the other person’s conker off their string.
CAUTION!! A word on safety – Make sure the conkers are held at arm’s length to avoid being hit by a rebounding ‘smasher‘!
