During the Spring/Autumn(770 BC-476 BC) and the Warring States(475 BC-221 BC) period, one of the manners of the leuds when entertaining guests is to invite guests to shoot arrows, called as "shooting rites ". At that time, the host asked the guest to shoot an arrow, and the guest could not refuse. Later, in order to enable guests who were really not good archery to participate in the game, they thrown arrows into wine pots instead, to make guests happy and practice etiquette. Over time, it has become a kind of hospitality and elegant game during banquets. It has spread for more than 2700 years and evolved from the original ritual activities to entertainment games. Although there are many changes in the way and rules of activity, the relationship with etiquette has not been completely cut off.
