Finding the Numbers


On a long table a number of circles are drawn at irregular distances. A mark is made, say twenty five yards off, and a Scout is blindfolded, turned thrice round, and is allowed to make for the table. Each circle has a different number within it, and when the Scout reaches the table he has to put his fingers on it. If he places his fingers inside a circle, that number is added to his score; otherwise he gets nothing. The idea of the game is to score as many as possible in a given number of turns.
