'Conkers' is a traditional children's game in Britain & Ireland played using the seeds of horse-chestnut trees – the name 'conker' is also applied to the seed & to the tree itself. The game is played by two players, each with a conker threaded onto a piece of string: they take turns striking each other's conker until one breaks.The first mention of the game is in Robert Southey's memoirs published in 1821.The game grew in popularity in the 20th century, & spread beyond England ~ Clackers…

Another of my alltime favorite things - opening a horse chestnut, or buckeye, and being the first person ever to see the conker inside!

How to Play Conkers - take a look at this traditional game from England. It is so simple and yet so fun and has "Autumn memories" written all over it. Brilliant.

Traditional Games - How to Play Conkers -Now banned in many UK schools (tsk tsk), this is one of those classic childhood games I associate with AUTUMN! A game of a bit of luck (how good is your conker) and skill (how good are you at aiming).

Great way to display all the conkers the kids bring home.  I've already filled out vases, just need the candles.
