The items needed for this game are a 1.5inch diameter, a two foot long dowel and your strength. There are two players that sit on the ground with their knees bent, and the souls of their feet touching with no space in between. Some spotters may be helpful to keep the two players in the same position by hold their hips, feet or back in place. The objective is to pull the stick away from the other player while keeping a strong grip on the dowel at all times.

Here’s a video that may help you with the process
