DUCKY

ONE BIG ROCK IS PLACED ON THE GROUND. EACH PLAYER HAS
ONE STONE TO THROW AT THE LARGE ROCK. THE PERSON
WHOSE STONE MISSES THE ROCK BY THE LARGEST DISTANCE
IS OUT OF THE GAME AND HAS TO PLACE HIS STONE ON
TOP OF THE LARGE ROCK. THE REST OF THE PLAYERS
COLLECT THEIR STONES AND THROW AGAIN TRYING TO KNOCK
THE STONE OFF THE ROCK. THE PLAYERS TAKE A PLACE BY
THEIR STONE. WHEN THE STONE IS KNOCKED OFF THE ROCK,
ALL PLAYERS MUST "FLY" (RUN) BACK TO THEIR ORIGINAL
POSITIONS BEFORE THE PLAYER WHO WAS OUT OF THE GAME
CAN PUT HIS STONE BACK UP ON THE ROCK. THE LAST ONE
BACK IS OUT OF THE GAME. THE GAME CONTINUES UNTIL
ONLY ONE PERSON IS LEFT.
