A typical handball court is a square or rectangle split into four or six smaller squares marked by painted lines, chalk, or the expansion joints made by laid concrete surfaces. The squares are usually named with some combination of Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Dunce, with "High" or a number like One or Two added to differential squares in games with more than 4 squares, such as "High King" or "Dunce One" & "Dunce Two" for the elimination squares in a 6 person court.

Ace was the highest square, then King, Queen, Jack (if you were playing with more than 4), then dunce, and followed by various orders of dunce. If it was just two, it was ace and dunce.

Handball: Ace, King, Queen, Jack & Dunce. Everybody probably played this. I wore out plenty of shoes. We also went through phases of Coca Cola yoyos, paper aeroplanes, and marbles. Also, Catch & Kiss.
