Oops! Had to change my profile. Getting to warm for that coat!
I like your new profile photo. Dressed for Northern Illinois winters, I see.
Thank you everyone for your comments. I'm surprise so many other children played Jacks. My grandchildren wouldn't know what I was talking about if I were to mention playing Jacks! Too bad, their loss!
Yes, I remember Jacks !! Thank you Lyndee. Great puzzle!
Loved 'em. Thanks for the memories!!! I saw some in a store a few years ago....they did not have the same "visual appeal" that the ones we grew up with had. I doubt the ball was real rubber, and for sure the jacks were some sort of fake material.
nice one and I remember LOL
Today's kids wouldn't know what to do with them and if taught would be bored silly. We made our own fun and are much more creative because of it. Just speaking up for the old folks!!
Oh neat! Jacks! I Used to play with these all of the time back when I was a kid! Thanksl
Wow, Jacks! Sooooo very, very neat!!! Thanks for bringing back nice memories. I used the be the best player in my neighborhood!
Oh, I so loved this game! I can still remember getting splinters from playing on the wooden porch. What memories! Thanks so much, Lyndee for posting this.
Oh, Jacks! It was one of my favorite games when I was a kid. Things were a lot different and more simple back then.
Sorry, laura! She looked like peppermint patty. I will never make that mistake again!!, HA!!! I should probably do the same, lyndee!
Awww Thanks Morris. I just put the picture of myself on for a few days so there wouldn't be any surprises in March! Now I'm back to make believe.
Morris...the Little Red-Haired Girl is not Peppermint Patty. The Little Red-Haired Girl is an unseen character, and is a symbol of unrequited love. While never seen in the strip, she appears onscreen in several television specials. Her name is sometimes cited in these as Heather. She serves as the object of Charlie Brown's desire. He most often notices her while eating lunch outdoors, and often tries to get up the courage to speak to her, but always in vain. Probably more than you wanted to know. Hahaha!
Yeah, whats up with the peppermint patty, we want the lyndee pic back!!!
Lyndee, you just changed your avatar! You look like Charlie Brown's "little red-haired girl" he liked so much. Cute! Yes, I remember playing Jacks, although I don't think I played all that much. Fun puzzle!
Ha Ha, PG. Maybe that would work......but yes, it is the wrong game......Again!
I know these they are Ninja throwing spikes. That was fun trying to pick up twelve of them after sticking them in the wall. Wrong game? Again!
Don't worry, I won't!!!
Wow susan, concrete had to be pretty rough on the hands and the butt! We played on the linoleum floor which wasn't too bad.Warbler, I too was pretty good but like you, my one sister seem to always beat me. I have small hands and when it came to picking up all 12, I would always leave one or two!Yes, morris, I agree.... LOL
i preferred to use a golf ball, probably cheating a bit, but i got a better bounce. i remember playing long enough for the skin on the edge of my "scooping hand" to get rubbed off on the concrete (i usually played on the driveway or front porch). not much fun to step on.
I gotta admit I was pretty good at Jacks but my sister beat me alot. This is a nice set. Cool ball and quality made jacks. Thanks for the memories, Lyndee
And don't you forget it morris. LOL
We all know that the girls are better at everything, lyndee!!
Too bad Morris, it was a great game. Although, it did seem like the girls were a lot better at this than the boys.You are right Mazda, it was a cheap game to play and you never got tired of it. (kinda like jigidi!) LOLYou are welcome Kaya. I would love to try it again.Ha Ha Chickie......you are probably right!
A little bit before my time. I know of them, but never played.
Yes! I remember playing this game for hours. It didn't need batteries and you could play by yourself. It really was a great game to learn some Math skills.
I REMEMBER THEM WELL,SPENT MANY HOURS PLAYING. THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.
Yes I do. And...... do you think you could get up off the floor after playing with these? LOL
