In India

The hopscotch game in India is known by many names. In regions where Hindi is the prominent language, the game goes by Kith-Kith, Stapu, and Langdi. In Bengal, it is known as Ekhaat Duhaat or Ekka Dukka. You can find kids in Maharashtra enjoying a game of Langdi Paani. The game is widely popular in South India and is known by the names Kunte Bille (Karnataka), Paandi (Tamil Nadu), Tokkudu Billa (Andra Pradesh and Telangana).

In Australia

The Australian Hopscotch is quite different from the traditional Hopscotch. In this version, the game is played in different stages. The first stage is completed according to the traditional rules. In the next stage called ‘Jumps’, the player is required to traverse through each square by jumping in with both feet. The last stage ‘Sizzles’ is the toughest where the players are supposed to jump into each square with both their feet, except in this case their feet are crossed.

Escargot

The French version of Hopscotch is popularly known as Escargot meaning ‘snail’. The name itself explains a bit about how the game is played. The players have to traverse through a spiral course and reach the centre of the spiral and then retrace their steps back to the beginning. This version is much tougher than the traditional Hopscotch as the court is harder to hop through.

Potsy

The game is quite popular in New York City by the name ‘Potsy’.

Laylay

In Iran, the game popularly goes by the Persian name Laylay. This version of the game is quite different and uses an even number of squares placed side-by-side.

Rayuela

If you ever want to play the game in Argentina, Colombia, Panama, Ecuador, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, Spain, Nicaragua, and Uruguay, it helps to know the game goes by the name Rayuela.

Himmel und Holle

Translating into ‘Heaven and Hell’, Himmel und Holle is the name for Hopscotch in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The space below the first square is called ‘earth’ and the second to last square is the Hell and the last square is heaven.

Peevers 

In Glasgow, the game is popularly known by the object it is played with which is called ‘peever’. The game is known by the same name in Edinburgh too.

Tumatu

Children in Ghana won’t recognise the word ‘Hopscotch’ but call it ‘Tumatu’ and they will be more than excited to play.

Amarelinha 

Amarelinha is the name ‘Hopscotch’ goes by in Brazil.

Chindro 

The South Asian version of Hopscotch is popularly known as Chindro.
