I’ve posted here a few times, talking about skelly, (how we called it) and Red Hot Peas and Butter (thought no one knew that one and I was wrong) and lately Skelly came back to mind. Now, I am 33 and I don’t have kids yet but I’d like to soon and maybe that is why skelly has been in my thoughts. That and, I an now living in Los Angeles and I see the kids around my block riding bikes but not doing much else and I thought, ‘Man, these kids could use a skelly board!’
So, I am going to do it. I have built my first skelly piece since I was 12 or so. Felt really good. Been keeping my eyes out for sweet pieces that would make good skelly caps. Now, I’m looking for a nice place to put the board. First I would like to just try chalk but later get a little spray paint and go on a midnight tagging run. I mean, could you think of a better way to do it? I’m sure that some of the kids around would get a kick out of it and I am sure that if people saw us playing, they would want too as well. Also, I thought it might be nice to leave that out here on the west coast before I head back east.
Anyone ever hear of Skelly being played in the west??? I doubt it but it’s worth asking. Hey, how about any games that were played out west? Seems to me, from reading this site, that all the cool games where big in the east.
Looking forward to showing skelly and a lot of other games to my kid one day. And yes, I had thought that skelly would make a great computer game, what are people waiting for. Damn I wish I knew programing.
