African Spinning Tops

We have noticed lots of boys playing a game here with home made 'spinning tops'. They carve a piece of wood into a point to make a spinning top, then they fashion a whip out of sticks and scrap material. They then whip their spinning top and can keep it going for a very long time. I haven't figured all of the rules of the game (or if there are any) but they seem to try and knock into each other's spinning top. They don't mind whipping each other around the ankles either :)
