Thanks to Richard Ostrowski for the info on “roundup”!! That used to be one of our favorite street games and I couldn’t remember the rules because it was so similar to ringolevio. Brings back a lot of good memories. And to Tony and Fran, I definitely remember “Run, Catch and Kiss”! We’d play with all the neighborhood cuties and it was a ton of fun, unless you catch or get caught by your friend’s “big” sister! Yes, I remember having to make believe I fell to avoid catching “Big Wanda”!!! I tell my kids about all of our old games from the Bronx and they don’t believe any of it!!! I tell them they don’t know how to have fun. This was all before pc’s, cell phones, and x-box/playstation 2 were even being thought of. Poor kids!
