What was your favorite childhood game?

Asked by flyawayxxballoon (1352points) August 22nd, 2008

I was a big fan of four square, Simon says, hide and seek, and kickball. What ever some of your favorites?

Oh, they still make them, but now they have weighted bean bag type things instead of big metal points on the ends!

You can still make them yourself!

Red Rover and Crack the Whip. I used to have this really cool board game called Go For Broke where the object was to spend as much money as possible as quickly as possible. It was almost as if they created that game with me in mind. I still use the rule book as my financial bible.

Treasure hunts were a weekly ritual….from the time I was three.
I also used to collect snakes and scare the crap out of my sisters!

Supermouse, you must be a member of my generation. I remember Go For Broke. Recess games were Red Rover, Crack the Whip, Statues, Easter Eggs, and the Tisket/Tasket game. In Utah they sing a different song but the game is the same. They sing something that goes “My Grandma has a dog and it won’t bite you, etc.” Funny!
