When you were a child, (seems like forever since i was) What game or games did you really enjoy to play? Could have been a sports game, board game or any other game. I loved jacks. You know where you have those metal star shaped things and you threw a ball in the air and picked up a jack and caught the ball? I played jacks so much I became champion of all the jack players lol. I also loved the oujia board. it was fun to try to make that thing move although I think we moved it ourselves. Oh and tic tac toe. Because i was good at it. What game or games did you love to play?

One of my favorite games was the game Sorry. It is a board game of chance. Where you can sorry someone back to their home base. I have since taught my children to play it and they love it as well. Another game I use to love to play was Dodgeball. Where you dodge balls that are being thrown at you.

Well Mssnow, There was a lot of games I very much enjoyed playing as a child. I played some sports, cause then I never really was into them. Played a lot of board games like snakes & ladder, my favourite board games at that time. Monopoly was cool too, did a lot of puzzles was totally into those too. I had a wide variety of games and things that I was into. Twister is very much fun playing when you're a kid. I say this because it doesn't hurt when you're a small kid. (joints aren't the same) Jacks was cool too. Tag, frozen tags, wood tag...hide and seek (1 of my faves) hey, I lived in a small town then.. too! Kissing tag (boys against girls) that was fun then too, cause I would catch my gf, and we would hide behind a portable, or anywhere exclusive and make out. That was fun! Can't do that anymore.. pity, oh well... Thanks for your discussion!

As a child (many moons ago!) I used to love my lego, I was always building, making things, I was an only child so I made up my own entertainment, sadly a lot of board games you needed two to play, I also loved my atari, space invaders, pac man, fond memories. The best game however was kiss chase at school with the girls ;0)

Hello,mssnow,when i was a child,i enjoyed playing monopoly with my family and friends as i did not need to move at all,i just had to sit down and throw the dices and move,it was very easy,I like easy games. I could also imagine i was a millionaire to buy the roads and houses which i might not be able to do in the real life:P

We used to play Hide and Seek way back when I am still young. It's fun to play that game because you'll definitely get frustrated when you cannot find someone in a long period of time..

I liked Red Rover, tic tack toe, hide and go seek, monopoly, stratego, marbles, statue, concentration, password, cootie, card games, and probably dozens of others that I can't recall. There was only one TV in the house, no cell phones or computers or video games. It was a simple and fun life, with few complications.
