Another old chestnut?

One of those old country customs which is new to me was mentioned on the letters page of tomorrow's fish-wrap. Spiders can't abide the smell of conkers, so a few placed in a bowl in a room will keep the spiders away. I must start looking for conkers as Mrs S can't abide spiders.

I meant to ask you, do American children play conkers?
