There are three grabbers, three taggers, five twig-runners, one center tagger, and the player at whack-bat. 13 total players. The center tagger lights a pinecone on fire and throws it to the player at whack-bat. The player hits the pinecone and runs to knock a cedar stick off the cross rods. Then the twig-runners dash back and forth until the pinecone burns out and the umpire calls “Hotbox”. Finally at the end you add up how ever many scoredowns that adds up to and divide that by nine.
