Hungarian Hopscotch

Hungarian Games for Children thumbnail

Hungarian children games are steeped in the tradition of story-telling. Games played in groups are often combined with folk songs that reflect Hungarian history. Other games resemble those played in the U.S., such as hopscotch. However, the Hungarian take on this schoolyard game is singular in its complexity.

Hungarian Hopscotch

  • Techniques in Hungarian hopscotch are changed to make the game more challenging for players. In the traditional hopscotch game played in the U.S., a stone is thrown into a square before a player progresses on the hopscotch board. When a player reaches the square with the stone, she picks it up and throws it ahead to another square, or outside the board. Modified Hungarian hopscotch make the player balance the stone on her finger or head. The stone can also be kicked instead of picked up and thrown. A Hungarian hopscotch board either resembles the traditional board, with eight squares, or uses a snail shape. The snail shape is a continuous coiled board with squares becoming progressively smaller as they approach the center of the coil. The player begins at the first square on the outermost circle of the shape, then jumps on one leg toward the center.
