Conkers is a traditional game played using the seeds of horse chestnut trees.

The game is played by two players, each with a conker threaded onto a piece of string: they take turns striking each other's conker until one breaks. The first recorded game of conkers took place in 1848 (but that doesn't mean it wasn't around before that), the game grew in popularity during the 19th century. Conkers are also known regionally as Cheesers, Cheggers and Cobblers.

TWO-ER

If you de-string a 'One-er' then your 'None-er' becomes a 'Two-er'. It scores one for the win and takes the score of the other.
