Hey Chinese jumpers!I'm in grade 8, and in grade 3,4, and 5 my friends and I use to play this game. I just got one of these rope recently and I kind of forget how to play this but one thing i do remember doing is the game calles MISSISSIPPI. So here is how you play...

M- Jump to the middle of the rope with both feet
I- Jump to the either sides of the rope with your feet
S- Jump with your left foot in the middle and your right foot on the outside
S- Jump with your right foot in the middle and your left foot on the outside
I- Same as before
P- Jump with both feet on the two sides of the rope
P- same as before

And finally jump out.

Thanks for reding!
I

Hi,
I remember playing Chinese jumprope in gradeschool, but we played with a chant that I can't find any mention of anywhere. I can't completely remember it, and would love it if somebody did remember it. It went something like this:
itsie
me
psalm
she
local
?
yahtzee
kill it!
I'm not sure of spelling of above and am spelling as close as I can to how I remember the sound. ? was something like hockel.

I remember the jumps that corresponded to the words:
itsie-straddling the first rope-
psalm--straddling first rope again
she--straddling second rope again
local (sp?)--inside
?--inside, but with legs spread so rope is stretched
yahtzee-inside again
kill it!--on the ropes

Does anybody remember anything like this?

I played 'Jingle Jangle' with a length of long elastic (tied into a circle) that would be stretched out between 2 friends at their ankles. the 3rd person would jump 'Jingle' feet either side of one elastic, 'Jangle' either side of other elastic, 'Centre' 2 feet in middle, 'Spangle'feet either side of both elastics, Jingle, Jangle, Out.

If carried out successfully you'd go up to knee level, thighs, hips, armpits.

I loved it so much would play it on own when no friends about using two chairs!

To Crowhugger in Ottawa - we also called it Yogi (Toronto, early 70's), but I vaguely knew it was also called Jumpsies. There doesn't seem to be much reference to Yogi on the internet.

We played in the late 70's early 80's a game we called Shing Shang it sounds like your description of Chinese jump rope except we used string. I don't remember the figures or most of our rhyme except it went Shing Shang one etc... This was Cincinnati Ohio
