How to Play Four Square

The classic game of four-square features a large square divided into four smaller squares, offering endless variations depending on the skills of the players involved.

As the name suggests, four players are required for this game, each occupying one of the squares. The objective is to dethrone the player in square 1, also known as the "King", who starts the game by serving the ball from the back corner of their square. With the option to serve into any of the other 3 squares, the player can choose to bounce or not bounce the ball before their opponent strikes it into another square.

This fast-paced game allows for multiple players to join in, as "misses" may occur when a player fails to hit the ball into their opponent's square, hits it out of bounds, or causes it to land on a line (except during a serve). In the event of a "miss", the responsible player must leave the game and step back to the challenge line, allowing a waiting player to move forward.

This kit ships with detailed instructions, and a layout guide with Four Square Court drawing specifications (also available as a PDF below).
