On the drive into work this morning, the topic on Martha Stewart Living Radio was all about games. Games that you loved as a kid, games that you play with your kids, social games for parties, etc. It got me to thinking about all of the games that I loved playing when I was growing up. I really wish I still had some of those games.
These were my favorites----
Candy land- I wanted to live there!!!
Chutes & Ladders-I thought it was funny to make people have to start over.
Hi-Ho- Cheery-O - I was fascinated by all the little cherries.
Ants In Your Pants- Only the truly talented could get those suckers to fly all the way across the room
Don't Spill The Beans- I wanted this game so badly but my mom would never buy it for me. She said it was dumb so I had to be content with playing it at my friend's house.
Cootie- I loved their tongues!!
UNO- Still one of my favorites
Merlin- Electronics!!! Man we thought those pulsing dots were cool. We thought we were so high tech
Simon- See above description. I had both the full size and pocket sized editions.
Electronic Battleship- I can still remember the noises these games made. "You sunk my battleship!!"
Trouble/Headache- Almost the same game. I was fascinated by the dice popper.
Life- Another game my mom would not buy me
Sorry- My most favoritest (is this a word???) game ever? Anybody want to play????
