How to play
• Each player secretly puts 0 to 3 of the coins in their fist. On the signal each player puts their fist onto the table.
• Then each player takes a turn guessing the total number of coins in the all the fists on the table. Each player must guess a different number.
• If someone guesses the exact number of coins, he or she drops out of the game. The remaining players start the next round.
• The last person left in the game loses.
Some people play that you cannot make a false call. This means on your turn you can’t make a guess that you know could not possibly be correct. A false call results in an automatic loss.
