PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A homegrown game is growing in popularity and it’s the brain child of a pair of Philadelphians.
If you can combine the equipment from bocce and the strategy of chess and golf, we will get a game called Stones.
Stones is a collection of five stretches- basically, five mini-golf holes in a way.
The whole concept is to be in nature, throwing balls at a smaller ball and probably most primitive of all games.
Chris and his friend John, thought of the game during a camping trip during 2006.
Originally in this game, they say, you always had to have a beer in your non-throwing hand.
Stones spread like wildfire and leagues are popping up throughout North America.
The pair plan to build a course, using only natural materials from the surrounding area, in Fairmount Park.
They say they will work throughout the the winter and hope to have it open by early spring.
