Today is “game night”. We started having “game nights” at our school this year on Friday nights every now and then as a way to relax, spend time together in a non-stressful situation, and have fun together. There are board games, wii, this guitar game I just don’t get, and Scrapbooking. I am a board game player. I love board games, always have, always will.
Leslie at Kaleidoscope asked on one of her posts what your favorite toys were as a child?”
This got me thinking about some of my favorite toys that I had as a child and how different childhood was “way back when” with the toys we played with compared to how childhood is today with the “electronic” toys kids now have. I remember playing with my Easy Bake Oven, my barbies, and always playing kick the can, badminton, and whiffle ball when playing outside.
My family also had a game closet full of board games, which included Mystery Date, Operation, Yahtzee, Risk, Rack-O, Uncle Wiggily, Clue, Monopoly, Chutes and Ladders, Go To The Head Of The Class, Candy Land, and Game Of The States.
Did you own any of these original version games?
Remember Mystery Date? I always wanted to date or win the “skier guy” but usually ended up with “dud guy”.
And for those of you too young to remember or too young to have had any of these games, you sure missed out on some fun.
