The game described as Hop Scotch we called Potsie. We played Hop Scotch on a grid of six boxes one above the other. Each box was the width of a sidewalk box. The idea was the same as Hop Scotch, but you had to hop the whole course. (No two feet down at any time). You turned around in the home box still hopping and picked up your “potsie” on the way back.
