The Rules of Jacks

  • Find a friend and a clear space, preferably on the ground and toss to see who has first go
  • Gather your ten Jacks and scatter them on the floor in front of you, facing your opponent
  • Toss the ball in the air with your throwing hand
  • Ok, now while the ball is in the air, with the same throwing hand, pick up one Jack (onesies)
  • Keep repeating 'till you have picked up all the Jacks. If you wish you can put the Jacks you capture into a pile before you throw the ball again, rather than leaving them in your hand.
  • Note: If you slip up, you have to give your opponent a turn. If they slip up then you can pick up where you left off, wherever you were in the sequence.
  • If you've been successful toss the Jacks out on the floor again
  • Throw the ball in the air
  • This time you have to pick up two Jacks at a time
  • Then three at a time and the one left over
  • Then four at a time and the two left over
  • Then five at a time
  • Finally you have to pick up ten at a time
  • Then go backwards down to onesies
  • Remember: if at any time you slip up, your opponent gets a go. The champ is the first one to complete the whole sequence.
