Kings and Queens

Post by starz92 » Mon Jan 08, 2007 5:56 pm

You got a bench at either end of a playground; two groups of people, boys against girls; two balls, (enough jokes, Dave.) and a seperator in the form of a rope going down the middle which you were not allowed to cross. The 'goalies' were arranged like a footie pitch, but with the goalie on a bench. They were called either the King or the Queen. The ball was thrown at the opponent's legs, or anywhere below the hip. If you liked, you could throw the ball to your Monarch, who could then secretly throw the ball at the opposition from the other side. If you hit a person below the hip, they had to join their Monarch on the bench and do the same job. When there are five people on the bench, once you've hit someone you are freed again. The winning team is the one with most players left. Anyone heard of it????

No. Not posh. Not my primary school, anyway. We were feral children. We wrenched the benches from the walls, I believe. When we were kids, we were all so innocent. Now we've gone to secondary school everyone's a chav! Apart from me, of course! :wink:
