Four Square Anyone?

Who remembers Four Square? Damn that was a fun game, it really only sucked when you had to chase the ball all the way across the playground. I remember four square being the thing in like 5th and 6th grade, we played handball before that and again at the end of 6th grade for nostalgic reasons. My school had like four regular sized courts and one giant court. The giant court was where you wanted to be so we would always designate one person to eat lunch fast who then had to get a ball and go claim the court for the rest of us.

I was reading the Four Square Wikipedia page and this line is both hilarious and incredibly true.

"A player [may be eliminated if he/she] violates a special rule. Four square is known for its many spontaneous rules."

It would be amazing how many special rules you could come up with in order to get people out when you wanted your friend in.

Grown-up life needs recess.
