Game description

Three boys from Cologne enter a chemist’s shop. The first one says; "I would like some peppermint pastilles for 5 cent." The chemist fetches the long ladders, climbs up high, collects the tin with the peppermints, weighs them out exactly, takes the money, climbs up again, places the sweets back in their place, climbs down the ladder and puts it to one side.

Then the second boy says: "I would like some peppermint pastilles for 5 cent as well." "Oh yes, and why didn’t you say that before?" asks the chemist annoyed. "Hey, you didn’t even ask me."

The chemist starts the complicated procedure once again although he does not want to. Once he is up on the ladder he asks the third boy: "What about you, do you want 5 cent worth of peppermint pastilles?" "Naw" answers the third boy. Once everything is tidied away, he asks the third boy, "And what would you like then?"

"I would like 10 cent worth of peppermint pastilles."
