What you need: You need a concrete surface outdoors, chalk, and bottle caps.

How to play: Draw a large box with the chalk on the concrete surface. In the middle of the box, draw a small box with a skull and cross bones inside it. This is the dead box. Then you will draw and number 13 small boxes around the deadbox. You will use the bottle caps as playing pieces.

The rules: The object of the game is to flick the bottle caps into each of the 13 numbered boxes. If your bottle cap lands in the dead box in the center, you are out of the game.

How to win: The player who is able to flick bottle caps into all 13 boxes and avoid the dead box is the winner.

What else you need to know: You can change the dead box rule from the player being out of the game to the player having to remove all his previously landed bottle caps and start over.
