I lived in Brooklyn in the late 60’s and played lots of skelly/skully on Bay Ridge Avenue between 18th and 19th avenue and West 8th between Bay PArkway and avenue O. I now live upstate and just made some caps with crayons and pennies with my kids. We then found this website and I am seeing that the boards we made back then seem to be atypical…..numbered just 1 through 9 with the area around the 9 called “mud”. Does anyone else recall this board configuration??
