One plays the game "Bilboquet" by swinging the "target" bone in the air the player attempts to catch it on the point of the long pin. A "target" that has multiple smaller holes requires the player to have more precise hand-eye coordination. A "target" bone that has a large single hole in which the pin can "spear" the "target" is easier to master.
