We played Ringolevio in Luna Park in the early 70s, during lunchtime at PS 90 (back when they let kids off the grounds on their own!!). We’d cross the street to our favorite playground and eat our bag lunches, and then after lunch we’d have a great game for 30 minutes, girls against the boys. We used electricity. Different pieces of playground equipment were bases, and there was a jail, which was the ladder fort. The boys base was a concrete turtle shape and the girls base was the curved monkey bars. Played all during the school year, but only on that playground. We were all Luna Park kids. We thought we had made up the game! Ha!
