Conkers: A British Kids' Game
Horse chestnuts are inedible, but British children found a fun use for them around the 1840s by turning them into a game called Conkers. Serious conkers players dry their conkers for as long as a year, soak them in vinegar, or bake them-whatever it takes to make the hardest, strongest conker. Don't get too attached, though, because your opponent's goal is to destroy it!
