If you are a little older, you may remember playing this wonderful game. If you’re a bit younger, maybe not. At any rate, this would be a good time to get acquainted or reacquainted with the original game of Jacks or Osselets, in French. To be real, this game is ancient. The Romans and the Greeks played it. But it’s not going away anytime soon.
This game can still be found on school playgrounds in countries all over the world. The original game was played with old dried bone of sheep and goat ankle (it’s still played that way in some countries). “Gogo Jacks” (Osselets Arc-en-Ciel) is now version made available in colorful plastic, in 8 different colors. Check out the website (www.osselets.com or gogojacks.com). Check out the “How to Play” page and post your feedback. This is a very interesting social game and it’s great for fine motor skill.
