Six young children – K, L, M, N, O, P – gather in a circle and play a game in which they toss a ball to one another. One child starts the game by tossing the ball to one of the other five children, who then tosses it to another child, who tosses it to another child, who is declared the “winner.” A child may handle the ball more than once during the course of any one game, but cannot toss the ball to himself/herself. The following conditions apply:
K can only toss it to P.
P can only toss it to O.
N can only receive a toss from M.
L can only toss to P or M, and M can only receive a toss from L.
N can only toss to K, and K can only receive a toss from N.
