Native Jacks-like Game
Although we call this game "Native Jacks" due to a fair similarity to the old European Game, we have found no reference to it's actually being called such. Like many games though it is indeed a game teaching skill and dexterity to all who play it! Included are ball, stick, and instructions. Available with either a wooden (period) or rubber (non period) ball when available. Like many other native games this one takes a great deal of practice and dexterity to play it.
