Probably spelt it wrong but it was pronounced Mo-sh-ae...you dug three small holes in the tarmac out the back and you had to throw coins into the holes but you could also knock other coins away...can't remember exactly how it is played and so if anyone does can you let me know...jist so i can sleep the night..

I remember the game but it is my recollection that it was played with marbles (bools?).

Karen's right. The gamblers played with coins, and the person who got his coin in all three holes first was the winner and collected all the pennies!
There was also a game where you threw your coins up against the wall and the winner was the nearest. And then there was tossing two coins up in the air and betting on they side they landed. Some of these were serious gambling games played by adult men.

I think us kids may have used ha'pennies or even farthings! (Go on, ask me, whit's a farthin'?)

Answer: a quarter of a penny, or half a ha'penny or in todays currency, about a tenth of 1p.!

Big Karen is exactly correct . Ther4e was three holes called moats and the object was to get your PENNY as in old money into the moats you threw your penny at the moats and if you hit someone elses then you lifted that penny and then you had another shot at the next moat up to the last moat .We used to play it after school in the lane between Garthamlock and Ruchazie ,everyone had there favourite penny whjch they would polish untill you could see your face in it.

Hi Weelew,
Wis that the lane that ran by the water tanks? I lived in Binns Road, Garthamlock between 1955 and 1964, which was near there. My memories of 'moshie' however, were from the back courts of Bernard St., Bridgeton, before we moved to the 'far west'.

Moashey we played with pennies or bools you had the three holes ,and you tossed a coin or done the paper and scissors ,or some other method ,to see who went first Once you had managed to go up then down the holes sucessfully . you were then "dougie" and you could try to hit , the other guys penny or bool He could not get to you till he was dougie. I have seen the game go the length of a street, as you had to hold your bool , at shoulder height as you threw it, so if you missed , it would skid along for a few feet , and the other guy had to try and hit yours and so on.Great summers night game.
