  wordfunph: book draw or ledger draw.
May-17-21  Cheapo by the Dozen: Balanced ledgers.

Too dumb a game to submit for GoTD, however.

May-17-21  Nosnibor: There is more than a double entry in the ledgers. Stephen (28/10/64), David (3/5/67), and Andrew (23/5/69). I have only played Stephen in the past.
