Does anyone still play this?
does anyone out side on NYC know this game?
i was teaching some neighborhood kids this game they thought i was crazy they never heard of it before but after i showed them how to make the game board out of chalk on the street floor and how to make the playing pieces out of bottle tops they strated to like it.
I have not played it years boy it brought back memories, i use to spend hours playing befoe i was a teen, what a great game.

I know this game,Naz,
You fill the bottle caps with wax-hit your opponents man outta the box!Move from box to box in the least amount of moves?
I wouldnt think kids today would know this-back then, there was NO electronics !Today, ALL electronic!ha ha ha ha-just like "buck-buck" "Hot beans and butter" "Warball"
The good ole days!

I'm born and raised in Texas, and even with all the yankee transplants back in the 80's, I've never heard of it.

Its good to be a "Toys-R-Us" kid,Naz,
I love kids-I was a Girl Scout leader for 5 years-(kindergarten-Daisies-to 4th grade-Brownies)-I shoulda taught the kids 'Skully" ha ha ha and other street games!
The parents woulda been like"what the heck" ha ha ha
Stay well!
