The kind folks over at 3D Tulsa put together a very fine video based on our official four square rules. They used great graphics and cool visuals to really illustrate the game in a way that plain text does not. Enjoy, it's only about two minutes!
A lot of people from a lot of different industries are looking to us to answer questions about the standards of this playground game. Somehow we have become the official source for rules clarifications, managing behavior, and even consulting about world records. This week we're addressing a couple of questions about the size of a four square court. I will answer your questions in the order they were received...
Dear Sean, if the ball enters a square on the fly, and the player hits the ball in their own square before it goes to another square, is the player who hit the ball out?
This is why I was surprised to get a call from the Guinness Book of World Records when they needed to ask me about the spirit of the game. They mentioned that a group out there had attempted to set a marathon four square game record in which there was one court and 50 people involved.
Dear Sean, I really love 4square! I'm 11 years old but don't under estimate me. I'm really good at 4-square. On the first day of school I made my mark. And now everyone is like Whatch out for Katherine. Is it okay if it's not just in bosten because I live in Columbus, OH and Bosten is really faraway. But that's probably asking too much but I really wish I could join.
