Product Description

Toss the ball, grab the jacks, and catch the ball, all with one hand! Sounds easy, but once you're grabbing 7, 8, 9, or even 10 jacks at once - You'll see it's quite the challenge! Bounce into a classic game from your parent's childhood.
Get your children bouncing and giggling with the classic game of Jacks!

The game of Jacks has been around for a VERY long time. In fact, in ancient times, kids played a very similar game called Knucklebones where instead of Jacks, they used the knuckle bones of sheep.

Luckily, with this Jumbo Tin, Jacks is a whole lot cleaner, brilliantly designed, and brimming with all those good nostalgic emotions your parents will love.

Pick who goes first and then toss all the jacks onto the floor so they're all scattered in front of you. Then, toss your rubber ball into the air, grab one jack, and catch the ball, all with one hand.

Seems simple, but things soon get challenging!

Once you grab all ten, one at a time, move onto twosies where you grab two jacks with one bounce of the ball. Grab all ten again? Just keep moving up to threesies, foursies, fivesies, and so on.

If at any time you mess up or grab the wrong amount of jacks, it's the other player's turn - But don't worry! Once it's your turn again, you can just pick up right where you left off.

The first player to get to tensies and successfully grab all ten jacks with one bounce of the ball wins the game!

At least... That's just one way to play.

Packaged in a classic tin container and designed just like the toys from your parent's childhood, the Jumbo Jacks Tin gets all kids, young or old, bouncing and grabbing for hours of fun!

      These jacks are great. They are fat and heavy! I love them! The instructions are complete. All the game I can remember and even more. A great gift.

      Jacks and Pick Up Sticks Quality
      Feb 13, 2017

      The jacks were well made. They came in attractive, collectible tin. (Also purchased the Pick Up Sticks. They were well made, contained in a suede pouch.) My girls were pleasantly surprised at the presentation and had a lot of fun learning how to play. It was truly a "blast from the past."

      Old Fashioned Jacks

      Looked and looked in brick and mortar stores for plain old jacks, nobody had them. Oh yeah! they have the cheapo plastic ones from some foreign country without any sense of how jacks are suppose to be played and of course they were only one dollar but I wanted the real thing for my grandsons, yes grandSONS. They (and I) love them. The quality and shine of the jacks themselves and the bounce of the ball are all just as this old grandmother remembers. The price was right as well. Packaging is great for storage and fits on to a bookshelf nicely. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Cordially, Virginia Kapski
