How to Play $9.5 for a box of chalk @ Tai On Build­ing, Sai Wan Ho

One of the classic play­ground games is now mostly rel­e­gated to the his­tory books (or Wikipedia). Hopscotch was a cor­ner­stone in nearly ev­ery park from the 50s to the 80s. Nor­mally just nine squares nowa­days, it’s hard to imag­ine that it be­gan as a 100 foot-long sol­diers’ train­ing ground in Ro­man Bri­tain. Toss a marker into the squares one by one, and then hop into them in the same or­der with­out step­ping on the lines.
