RIDLEY'S JACKS - RETRO GAMES

Jacks. Also known as Jackstones, Jackrocks, Fivestones, Onesies and Knucklebones. Jacks originated hundreds of years ago in Ancient Rome. The game used to be played with materials such as small stones or animal bones, but now we're lucky enough to play with metal ones! So teach your kids this game that has been loved and played for so many generations. Today Jacks are a classic playground game.

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.
