My brother, my cousins, and I made up the weirdest games.

One game me and my brother used to play consisted of throwing pillows on the ground and trying to jump towards the next nearest pillow. The ground represented a deadly lava. So the game always ended up with someone holding out their hand going "HELP MEE!! IM DYINGGGG!! IM BURNINGG!"

I used to also love games like Guess Who and Connect-four :D

haha, so like tag?? Or i guess it is tag except you guys prolly have a different name for it.

We used to play freeze tag, which is a more enhanced form of tag...oh and rebellious games like ding dong ditch.

:D omg that reminds me of when we were out on a field trip in 3rd grade, and we were walking to wherever it was we were going...I was walking behind the teacher and he says something like "Don't step on a crack or you'll break your mother's back!"...And I believed him for a while.

Ding dong ditch is basically where you ring someone's doorbell and then you run away so that you don't get caught..and then you do it several times to make it more risky. It's an adrenaline fun-filled game.

Do you guys have rhymes before you start a game to determine who'll be 'it' first? Kinda like inny minny miney mo.

I used to love to play tetherball, kickball, and dodge ball.

Duck-duck-goose and stuck-in-the-mud were old time faves. Except duck-duck-goose usually ended up with someone being speared (wrestling move) to the ground.

Hide and Seek was always good when we were kids - you could hide almost anywhere. And the challenge was finding somewhere new to hide - like in the bathroom (thought, that was considered cheating in my book; you can't play hide and seek AND take a leak at the same time!)

Those were the days.

In addition to the tig-tag and hide and seek, we used to play several games with tiny balls of glass, top/plummet (a small round conical device of wood which was supplied with a nail on one side and a rope to tie it around, then through on ground in such a technique that it start rotating its own axis).

Recalling past, I remember, we used to play a freez game in which when ever we saw our friend or sister or brother whom was agreed to play freeze/stop game, we ordered hi,/her to stop and he/she had to stop untill the person who ordered released the that notion.

It seems very silly to today's kids but we were really having fun in them.

Oh yes, during those periods in which teacher did not come in the class or he wanted to do some work and asked us to do our home work and not to make noise, we were playing cricket using the most thicker book of our course. It will be very strange for few readers, we were conducting tournaments. LOL.:D
