Escargot


                                                My story

"Ouch ouch " I yelled jumping up and down.It was like the ground was like an oven under my little.We were so excited. Andrew,Carol and me were buddy's. We were a great team. We were going to play a French game called Escargot. It was so fun but so tiring. 



                                    How to play the game




  • Escargot is one of the traditional European children’s games from which American hopscotch draws inspiration. Instead of a linear diagram, French children draw the board in the shape of a giant snail, or an "escargot" in French, with 15 to 20 numbered squares leading towards the blank center square. Throughout the game, players must hop on one foot to and from the center square without landing on any drawn lines or opponent’s squares, or they lose a turn and can not claim a box. If they complete the circular journey, however, they get to choose a square to initial as their own exclusive place of rest Instead of throwing pucks or markers. As the game progresses and players claim more territories, the journey to and from the center square becomes more challenging and ends when it is impossible for players to hop to the center square, with the winner claiming the most spaces.
