    Directions (translated from Danish): 6 balls are required to play, the top is spun among them in the center of the bowl. Points are awarded according to the numbered holes in which the balls come to rest. Extra points: 4 balls in a row merits 2 points, 5 in a row 5 points, and all 6 in a row doubles the points already obtained. If the top is spun so hard as to force the balls off the bowl they may not be brought into the play again. Have fun!

    Artist: Piet Hein (1905-1996) - architect, mathematician, poet. He mastered it all and made Danish cultural life a little richer, a little prettier, and a little wittier with his trademark lines and his quirky language. He had the rare ability to bring poetry, geometry, and design together in a harmonious way, where function and art are weighted equally.
