SCATTER THE SAGA SEEDS

This game was played a long time ago but became more popular in the mid 70s.  It is played almost everywhere without knowing its origin

The main tool is the saga fruit seeds but rubber seeds, beads and pebbles can also be used. Players' turn need to be determined first before the game starts. Each player is required to give a few seeds to the player whose turn comes earlier. The usual practice is that players need to take out at least 20 seeds but depends on the agreement of the other players.

There are two methods of playing that is individually or in groups. Among the rules of this game are that the total number of seeds must be the same, played on a smooth floor and follows the agreed turns of playing. If the little finger touches one of the seeds while that seed crosses a line then the game is ended.
