#40-46 – Bumper Zenn 1 – 7

#40 – bumper Zenn 1

Eight large chips are used. Player A places his 4 chips on the letters “Z”, “E”, “N”, “N”, closest to his basket. Player B does the same. The player with the red chips shoots first. The object is to be the first one to sink all four of your chips into your opponent’s basket before your opponent sinks his four chips into your basket. Players alternate shots. If one’s chip is sunk in one’s own basket it is removed and placed on the center line. Choice of position is made by the opponent. Chips knocked into either basket by opponent’s chips count as being sunk.

1) To try to shoot his own chip into his opponent’s basket.
2) To try to “clear” or shoot his opponent’s chip away from the basket.

Either of the two options constitutes a· player’s turn. Also, if a chip is entirely in a given section, a player receives the point value of that section if he sinks the chip.

If a player takes the second option of shooting his opponent’s chip and sinks this chip his opponent receives the appropriate point value for the shot. The player with the most points is the winner. The game ends when one player has no more chips to sink.
