You need a long jump rope for the play (few jump ropes connected with each other) or a long string. One of the players revolves the rope around him, holding it low ground. Other participants jump over the rope. A person who misses then takes back the jump rope.

There will be new, modernized versions of old games and backyard plays which sometimes will go beyond the literal interpretation. Traditional games will be an inspiration, "new games" more or less free interpretation.
