Yall did not have anything in here about tops. We used to wind these things up with a string and shoot them and they would spin. At the outset of the game all participants would shoot their tops. The one whose top spun the longest would shoot first all others had to put their top into a “pot” where the shooter would try to “costy” all of the tops in that pot. There was no real winner in this game, but the one with the most colors on his or her top would have braging rights. I just had a friend of mine buy me one of these tops, and I keep it on my mantle piece. this game is one of the coolest games from the past.
