<The traditional game of jacks has gotten a fresh makeover! Scatter the jacks, bounce a ball, and try to collect the correct number of jacks and the ball in one hand before the ball bounces twice. When playtime is over, cleanup is easy. The 10 gold- and silver-colored metal jacks and two bouncy balls store in a tie-top pouch that fits in the beautifully crafted wooden box with lid. Not only is this fun to play, but the storage box is also pretty enough to display. Detailed game instructions and variations are included.
