Pea-shooters used to be weapons used to hunt and attack enemies. Their homeland is Malaysia but it was the Arabs who brought them to Europe in the XIII century. Today it’s a simple game, promoted since 2003 by Associazione Giochi Antichi (lit. “Ancient Games’ Association”) of Verona in a non-agonistic version, during Tocatì. Given their essentiality, pea-shooters can be made with any recyclable material and the arrows, called pìrole in the Veronese dialect, are strips of newspapers that are shot with a determined blow.
