Northern Game: Flipdisk - Culture
Written By: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer), Ellen Million (Editor)
Flipdisk is a northern game of chance and skill, which involves tossing several game pieces in a basket.
 
 

Flipdisk is a northern game similar to the Plum Stone game played by Native Americans. Game pieces (a set of six disks) are blank on one side, with a symbol carved and/or painted on the other side. The pieces are placed in a shallow basket or bowl and tossed. Those which land face-up in the container are scored, and the same player may toss again. Those which land face-down in the container, or fall outside, are not scored. (If any fall out, they don't go back in the container until it passes to the next player.) A null score ends the current player's turn, and the next player gets to toss. Running out of pieces also ends the current turn.
