  'bottle game' Djemma El Fnaa
by suvanki

Wandering around the square, day or night, you'll probably encounter various 'games' (opportunities to lose your money!) such as card games or this bottle game.

I think the idea was to place a ring, attached to the end of a long cane over the bottle neck.
I'm not sure what the prize was, and I didn't see anyone succeed- but I saw a lot who thought they would!!

Enjoy watching ever hopefuls try, but be aware of where your purse/wallet are, while watching- crowds gather and it might be an opportunity for a pick pocket to strike. Oh and be careful if you are called on to try your luck!!!
