Stumbling across this picture which shows action going on brought back a lot of old memories.
Seems that I remember this game but don't remember being any good at it. I was always a scaredy-cat as the kids used to call each other when they were doing a "double-dog-dare" and you refused to do it.
Since I grew up in another state, I'm wondering if you Searcy Arkansas folks called it the same thing we did. And how strange to actually find an old picture of these dressed up kids playing.
