OT: Childhood games
Sorry I have to ask, especially since we have nothing to talk about until the new season airs.
Today at lunch, my friends and I were hanging out in the quad (we’re one of the few that don’t go off campus to eat) and we decided to play Cartoon Tag, which is like Freeze Tag but you can unfreeze someone by touching them and shouting a popular cartoon. Well, we later changed it to TV Tag and I always unfroze people with “The Adventures of Henry Adams” (yep, I recited the full title). It was a lot of fun and it got me reminiscing about all the games I used to play with the neighborhood kids. I wanted to know…what kind of games did you play? I want to know if the ones we played were made up just for our area or somehow known throughout the country?

By the way, I didn’t want to ruin the experiment by actually listing my games but here are the ones I can remember ~ Red Rover, Freeze Tag/Tag/Cartoon Tag, Hide and Seek, Treasure Hunt, Mother May I (this one was so dumb…all you had to do was remember to always ask “mother may I” and people always said “can I take 15 giant steps” and got to the front), Red Light Green Light (much more fun unless they were green light for too long, then the fastest kid just won).

There was one with lava where if you stepped on something, you would be touching the lava. But I don’t know the name of it.

Did you do inca-inca-bottle of ink to figure out who was “It?”

Re: OT: Childhood games
Yes. And then “Mickey Mouse built a house. How many bricks did he use?” and you said a number and then they count to eliminate people’s fists (each holds out two fists) and whoever it lands on gets to take one fist away. And we’d also use “eeny meenie minie moe” and if the moms weren’t listening, “Donald Duck picked his butt. How many pieces did he pick?”

Re: OT: Childhood games
I’m a little older than you guys but I can verify that all this sounds familiar. We also played House and Teacher and played in our clubhouse (an actual clubhouse designed for kids built by my friend’s dad).
