Games We Grew Up With

Recommended Posts

You would have thought by my fit active lifestyle that I was one of those kids who was out and about in the early 70s.

But rather than a Raleigh chopper, I got one of these in Christmas 1971 and thought it was the dogs ********. (Haunted House by Denys Fisher)

Memories of childhood games?

Glad to see a few examples of British Bulldog on Youtube - I thought it had died.

It is quite an awesome sight seeing an entire school running at one small kid in the middle of the playground.

Can't see any proper examples of kiss chase though. I used to love playing that at junior school.

British Bulldog is a strangely inspiring and almost revolutionary socialist game as it show how the weak and outnumbered by getting others on their side can overwhelm even the strongest. The principle is simple the one isolated kid takes down the weakest in the pacj charging him. That person then joins his team and the process is repeated. Before long the roles are reversed and the bulldogs have the numers to take down even the most intimidating physical opposition. As a life lesson it can not be beten and explains why the aurthorities are always afraid of people forming large crowds and why they want to keep society atomised and distracted.

British Bulldog is a strangely inspiring and almost revolutionary socialist game as it show how the weak and outnumbered by getting others on their side can overwhelm even the strongest. The principle is simple the one isolated kid takes down the weakest in the pack charging him. That person then joins his team and the process is repeated. Before long the roles are reversed and the bulldogs have the numbers to take down even the most intimidating physical opposition. As a life lesson it can not be beaten and explains why elites are always afraid of people forming large crowds and why they want to keep society atomised and distracted.

There is a wonderful book called The People In The Playground by Iona and PetervOpie which describes the world of kids playground games. Of course, the authors had to hang around children to research the topic so would probably find themselves banged up as potential paedos by operation Yewtree now.

spin the bottle - Youth of today have hard core porn online instead.

Choppers, roller skates and sevenisies (bouncy ball tricks against the wall).

Ping-pong, table tennis.

Been teaching my son the delights of pegs and kerby. Sadly I'm still shockingly bad at both, despite having decent hand-eye coordination in just about every other sport.

It's just an excuse to get your jumper ripped to shreds - still, it's good to see mention of this game, last played by me back in the 1960s.

Last time I played it I ended up with what I thought were water droplets on my arm. Turned out is was glass shards from my shattered watch face.

I loved that watch as well.

Have you thought of suing the school/education authority for allowing a game of hooliganism that caused you emotional and material damage?

Poo Sticks! Nothing to do with A.A,Milne! You find some poo, get a stick, and wipe it on door handles!

It was probably radioactive. Saved your life.

Now that we've heard from both sides the judge can make their deliberation.

1990s judge: Man up, you big jessie!

2010s judge: Here's a six figure sum, courtesy of the taxpayer. My verdict is that schools should increase their lunchtime supervisors by 50% (to make sure this doesn't happen again) and teachers should spend an extra day a month writing risk assessments so that they can understand why this shouldn't happen again.

You show me Yours and I'll show you Mine

P

Didn't we all do that? I know I would have bought a Wagon-Wheel biscuit for any young lady who would have shown me all that! I showed her mine for a gobstopper!

I think 'gobstopper' should be in the swear filter.
