Drifting is a gambling

Kienen is a game where each player has a form with numbers. The numbers may be ticked off when the number is drawn (the play leader draws a number and reads it). Kienen is often organized in local houses and in sports canteens to collect extra money. The person who is the first to be able to strip all the numbers is the winner and wins the prize.
