"Other kids' games are all such a bore!
They've gotta have rules and they gotta keep score!
Calvinball is better by far!
It's never the same!
It's always bizarre!
You don't need a team or a referee!
You know that it's great, 'cause it's named after me!"
- Calvin, from Calvin and Hobbes
Yep, it's time for Calvinball!
Here are the rules, as per Calvinball veteran Doris Sander, via the Jenni Bowlin Studio Mercantile Forum:
There's another reward, actually -- being entered in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Jenni Bowlin Studios. Niiice.
Two years ago, I earned 17 points total; last year, I earned 74. I'm hoping to do better than that this year, but I do have turtle-like tendencies when it comes to crossing the Calvinball finish line. Slow and steady win the race? Not in this case. Regardless, I'm willing to give it a go -- Calvinball is always so much fun! As Calvin claims, it's really not about keeping score, and the rules are most definitely open to interpretation and contestation. Game on!
