On several occasions while I was camping with my family I
witnessed an unusual game played by people from rural areas.
Two people would stand about six feet apart with their legs
spread apart. They would then take turns throwing a knife
into the dirt between their opponent's legs. Each time the
knife was thrown and the person didn't jump out of the way
they would close their legs by one step until their feet were
touching. The loser was the first person to jump out of the
way.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; rural areas
