AUTOMOBILE GAME

WHEN TRAVELING, CHILDREN CAN PASS THE TIME BY PLAYING
A GAME WHICH INVOLVES COUNTING COWS. TWO CAN PLAY,
EACH CHILD TAKING ONE SIDE OF THE ROAD. WHENEVER THE
CAR PASSES COWS, THE CHILD WHOSE SIDE THEY ARE ON
COUNTS THEM OR ESTIMATES THEIR NUMBER. EACH KEEPS
TRACK OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF COWS FOR HIS SIDE. IF THE
CAR PASSES A CEMETERY, THE CHILD WHOSE SIDE IT'S ON
LOSES ALL HIW COWS. THE WINNER IS THE ONE WHO REACHES
A PREDESIGNATED NUMBER OF COWS FIRST, OR ELSE THE ONE
WHO HAS THE MOST COWS WHEN THE TRIP ENDS.
