How to play five stones

Five stones is a traditional Malay game. It requires 2 or more players taking turns. The aim is to score as many points as possible. A point is scored when a player completes the eight steps, then throw and catch as many 'five stones' as possible.

The player stops playing when
1) The stone, which is thrown in the air, is not caught in time.
2) The player touches or moves stones apart from those he has picked up.

When it comes to his turn again, he begins from the step where the mistake was made.
The winner is the one who has the highest score.

Enjoy the game!
