    Default Chucks - think also called 5 stones.

    Can anyone remember a game called chucks? You had 5 different coloured chalk cubes (about the size of a dice). They came in a small box about the size of a mtachbox. You placed them on the back of your hand and threw them in the air and then tried to catch them. You then had to throw one in the air whilst you picked up any dropped ones (similar to jacks). There were loads of different 'levels' to achieve each getting harder. We'd play for hours sitting on the pavement / back street!!!

    I recently bought a set from a select toy shop for my mam (she loved them!!) but when I went back to get them they 'd stopped selling them - actually claimed they'd NEVER sold them!! If you know where i can get them PLEASE let me know x
