The box and ball system (BBS) models the dynamics of balls moving among an array of boxes. The simplest BBS is derived from the ultradiscretization of the discrete Toda equation, which is one of the most famous discrete integrable systems. The discrete Toda equation can be extended to two types of discrete hungry Toda (dhToda) equations, one of which is the equation of motion of the BBS with numbered balls (nBBS). In this paper, based on the ultradiscretization of the other type of dhToda equation, we present a new nBBS in which not balls, but boxes, are numbered. We also investigate conserved quantities with respect to balls and boxes, the solitonical nature of ball motions, and a scattering rule in collisions of balls to clarify the characteristics of the resulting nBBS.
