Get your child to play and enjoy this traditional game. This is so much fun for all the family!!!
Conkers is a traditional game in Ireland. The game is played by two players, each with a conker threaded onto a piece of string. Each child(or adult) take turns striking each other’s conker until one breaks.
Rules of play
Two players, each with a conker threaded on a piece of string or a shoelace, take it in turns to hit each other’s conker, until there is one conker left.
The first player holds out their conker at arm’s length, hanging down, ready to be hit. The string should be wrapped around his or her hand to stop it being dropped.
They must hold the conker still as the other player hits it. If it accidentally swings, the second player can steady it before they take a strike.
The second player then wraps the string of his or her conker around her hand, draws it back and takes aim.
He or she lets go of the conker as they swing their arm in an arc and tries to hit the other person’s conker.
The first player then has a go at hitting the other player’s conker and they take it in turns.
NOTE: If the player deliberately moves his or her conker while waiting for it be hit, the other player is allowed another go!
The winner is the person who breaks their opponents conker first.
