Mailbox, Bus Stop, Tea Party
Original poster (sean) said:
The back corner of each square is called the Mailbox, and when the person in four square yells "Mailbox" then you forget the ball and run to your mailbox and the last one to get there is out.
The center of the court where all squares intersect is called the Bus Stop, and when four square yells "Bus Stop" everyone has to forget the ball and run to get on the bus. The last one there misses the bus and has to go ask mom for a ride to school.
Tea party is similar. Thats when everyone runs to the bus stop and sits down for tea. Apparently there is only enough tea and crumpets for three people, and the last one there is s.o.l. Don't ask why tea parties are thrown at the bus stop, I don't understand it myself.
