In Britain and Ireland, the seeds are used for the popular children's game conkers. During the First World War, there was a campaign to ask for everyone (including children) to collect the seeds and donate them to the government who chose to ask for conkers to avoid causing starvation by depleting food sources. But conkers were found to be a poor source of nutrition, however, they were collected again in the Second World War for the same reason.
