GUEST,Steve BS: England - World Conker Champions (27) RE: BS: England - World Conker Champions 13 Oct 05

We also had "stampsies" - where if you knocked the conker out of the hand of your opponent you could (as long as you said "stampsies") jump on his conker - usually until you destroyed it.

Likewise "windmills" let the person saying "windmills" have another go where the conker was hit 360 degrees; and "tanglies" where the string got tangled between the two players.

Soaking in vinegar and baking in the oven were regarded as very bad form!
