Construct: Noun
Definition: A game similar to Feck. The players pitch coins to a jack, the closeness of the coins to the jack determines the order of tossing the coins. The person tossing bets on his own 'heads'. If the coin turns up 'heads', he wins whatever bets he made and tossed again and repeated until the coins turned up 'harps' (or tails). Each player takes his turn to bet against the man tossing in the same order as the proximity of his coin to the 'jack'.
Derivation: Unknown
