Sonnet Help with playing 'Chinese Jump Rope' (57* d) RE: Chinese Jump Rope 24 Dec 03


Thanks for bringing back childhood memories. I loved playing Chinese Skipping! If I remember correctly, the elastic would be raised up the legs of the two people on the ends (or up the buffet legs if no-one was playing out)on completion of a full correct sequence. We also referred to the game as Lastics, probably because we played with knicker elastic rather than rubber bands.

The descriptions so far tally with how we played here in Penistone, South Yorks, in the late 60's.
