Snarfem, a two-player game of removing pebbles, originated in Mithicus
and comes from an ancient Mithican word meaning "to collect pebbles or
small stones." The purpose of snarfem is to remove the correct amount
of pebbles during each turn that will force the opponent to take the
last pebble. This game is a common source of entertainment along the streets of major cities.
