BLACK SNAKE (Also called Rattlesnake)

Object:     To shoot into each of the holes consecutively and then back again
             without being killed by the other players.

Set Up:     Seven holes are dug in an irregular pattern like a slithering snake.
             (Figure #8)

Ante:        One marble per player.

Rules:       The players alternate turns trying to shoot into each hole, in order,
             going from left to right and then back again in order to become
             "poison."  Once a player is poison he can eliminate other players by
             hitting them.  He must be careful, however, because if he accidently
             goes into a hole, he eliminates himself also.  The game is over when
             there is only one player left.
