Have there already been five? Will you win a bet? A prize? Bragging rights?

Does someone have nine?

Must you recieve five more before another?

Is what you need five more of physical, mental, social?

Is there anyone else involved?

Is this some sport in which play is for "fun"?

Do your smilies refer to something important?

Is it coinicidental that the sentence contains five words?

Hallo!

Is the game a sport? Bowling? Is it a game that most of us would know? Or something you and/or some friends made up?

Are these "physical" things in your possession? Things you see? Are you counting things? To see who can count a certain number of them first?

Indoor, in a strict sense of the instance I'm playing, but you could play it outdoors as well, I guess. The others, no.
