WORLD’S BEST HOPSCOTCH GAME

Walking out to my car the other morning, I noticed a hopscotch game chalked onto the sidewalk.  It’s summer, so I figured, “No big deal”… until I started reading it, and suddenly realized:

This was no ordinary hopscotch board.

It appears that some of the neighborhood kids (or maybe their parents?  I can’t tell) had created the

WORLD’S BEST HOPSCOTCH GAME.

As you’ll soon see, it’s dice-based, so I don’t know if you can technically call it hopscotch, but it stretched halfway down the block, and so, like a (slightly weird, creepy) nerd, I walked its entire length taking pictures of each “tile.”

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Subtitles are provided, as some of the chalk colors — pink, in particular — didn’t show up so well on the iPhone cam.

TALK IN A BRITISH ACCENT UNTIL YOU PASS THE TINY MAN HOLE

(My absolute favorite.  It’s the mustache and the tea.)

.

JUMP LIKE A FROG UNTIL YOU ROLL A 3 OR 5

.

JUMP ON 1 LEG, TOUCH THE X, AND HOP BACK OVER THERE

.

YELL “I’M A PRETTY LITTLE PRINCESS”

(Another favorite.)

.

SING “FRIDAY” UNTIL YOUR NEXT TURN

(Notice the angry grimace on the face.  If I landed on this square, I’d be angry, too.)

.

THE OTHER PLAYER GETS TO KICK YOU IN THE BUTT

(Did I mention how fantastic this game is?!)

.

MOVE BACK 3 SPACES (BOO HOO!)

BE CAREFUL. THERE IS A LITTLE MAN IN THERE. KICK HIM THEN MOVE UP 2 SPACES

(Well, of course!  The Pizza Song!)

.

GO BACK TO THE START (HA)

.

STAY LIKE THIS UNTIL YOUR NEXT TURN

TELL A JOKE & IF THE OTHER PLAYER DOESN’T LAUGH MOVE BACK 1 SPACE

.

YOU WIN

.

I think we ALL win on this one.

  1. Wow, that sure shows originality and creativity. Some physical action, some singing and dancing – what could be wrong with that? (Sorry, channelling Dawn from “Once More With Feeling” with that last bit.)

  2. I WANNA PLAY!

  3. I wrote a comment then my laptop spazzed and I can’t do it again, I just can’t.
