How to Play Bucktail

To play bucktail, a Stegosaurus stands between two large mounds of straw. 
Each player in turn climbs on the tail and holds onto the spikes. 

The tail begins to wag back and forth until the player loses hold and tumbles safely into the straw.

Those spikes are called a Thagomizer. A name inspired by a Far Side cartoon.

Hi James, the spiky end of a stegosaur's tail is called a thagomizer according to Wikipedia. Please see the link below which I hope works.

All the best,
