Red Rover and Annie Over (variant pronunciation) used the rules outlined
in other messages when I was a kid in South Texas. And I remember something
about pigtails in Annie Over. Long time ago. Keep-Away was a popular game
with a ball, but it wasn't fair to grab it out of someone's hands.
I was born in North Texas (Gainesville) and lived there till age 7, so
I learned many of these games from cousins there, who also had Oklahoma and
Arkansas connections. There may have been some rule books for recess games,
and that explains why similar rules were used throughout the country.
