....yeah. well you should see the other guy.

Last night I had a walk into my Jr. High past. I played Quarters. Wow, I havn't played that game in so long. Which kinda made me feel good to know that I'm still good at it!











For those of you not familiar with Quarters, here is how you play.







*disclaimer: this game is not the most intelligent of things to do with your time. Pain and Blood are always involved.







First You need a quarter (or similar sized coin) and a flat surface.







Next you decided the "rebound" order (The Order In which the players will go).







Now you are ready to play.







Play begins with player 1 taking a quarter, putting it on its edge. Then the player flicks the quarter in such a way as to make it spin. Play has now started.







The next player then has to contact the quarter without causing it to stop spinning. This can be done in a few ways. One is to flick the quarter while it is still spinning, in order to make it spin faster. The other way is to tap the quarter in an effort to slow its spinning but without making it stop spinning.







If the player succedes in flicking the quarter, that is called a "rebound". Once the player has rebounded, the turn is passed to the next player. Play continues untill someone contacts the quarter in such a way as to make it stop spinning.





This is where it gets interesting.





Now that the Quarter has stopped spinning, the person that last touched it correctly has possesion of the quarter.





The person who touched it and made it stop spinning must now make a fist and place it on the table, knuckles facing down as if punching the table.





The person who has possesion of the quarter now places his pointer finger and middle finger on either side of the other players hand, and places his thumb down on the quarter. He then launches the quarter as hard and as fast as possible into the knuckles of the other player.








Yes, you read that correctly. Object of the game. Bleed last.





So, now that you know what the game is, let me show you what it looks like after about an hour of play.





As you can see from these two pictures. Its a ton of fun. ;)

Try and guess who the winner was.
