Would a magazine like Ladybug consider dodgeball an unsafe game to feature? I'm working on a revise and resubmit and thinking of incorporating an Indian game similar to dodgeball.

:lol4  I really don't know Starfish. We kids played on the streets with zero protection. But if they're worried about it, the illustrator can always put helmets on the kids or something. :catch

For Highlights, I would say it's an automatic rejection. Ladybug might go for it if it's fully accurate to the times and game.

New!
Thanks, Vijaya and Debbie!

Yes, the seven stones game, Vijaya!

It's Ladybug, Debbie.

But it sounds as if  I need to think about this some more. I don't want this to be the reason they say no to my revision...
