Play is the thing

All you need for boxball is a spaldeen and 2 squares on the ground--like these guys had at the 2000 Back to Brooklyn Festival.
The variety of ways we've found to amuse ourselves in the streets is amazing. At the drop of a hat, we invent games and through sheer determination make them indispensible and legendary. Using whatever is at hand--bottlecaps, a stick, or the ubiquitous spaldeen--city kids though the ages create games that are the envy of any sportsman or marketeer.

So... welcome to our games section! While it's impossible to document and categorize every game any kid ever played in the street, we've tried to hit the major ones here. We hope you enjoy it! If we've missed your favorite game, or your memory of any game is particularly vivid--or differs from ours--please let us know and we just might add your story to the collective streetgame consciousness!
