Knuckle-bone shooting is a popular team-based game played in Mongolia. Teams of six to eight players flick thirty domino-like marble tablets on a smooth wooden surface towards a target of sheep knuckle-bones, aiming to knock them into a target zone. Each shooter possesses individually crafted shooting tools and instruments, and wears a costume embossed with distinguished characteristics depending on his rank and merits. The tradition encourages interaction between team members from different backgrounds and respect towards elders and one another, while improving social cohesion.
