Official Five Stone Rules
(as played against the wall of Tweedsmuir School, Hamilton, Ontario during the late forties)

Equipment:
one ball (sponge, tennis etc.)
five small stones (pebbles preferred)
one wall with a few feet of pavement in front of it.

Set up:
Arrange the stones a foot or so away from the wall.
Place them in about a six inch square, with one stone in each corner and one in the centre

The play:
Thrown ball must hit the wall, the pavement (or the pavement and the wall)and be caught. It may hit each surface only once during each play.
Players continue to throw the ball until ball is dropped or makes more than the two designated bounces.
Play then proceeds to the next player.

The object:
The object is to score points by moving the stones.
Moving a corner stone is one point. The centre stone is five. Scores are cumulative until the school bell rings.
