Tuesday Ten.

This week's Tuesday Ten prompt is ten favourite games as a child.. So, in no particular order..

1. Hide and Seek. This was a favourite as long as I can remember, until, well until now really. Of course as I got older the game got a bit more elaborate (playing in the woods instead of in the house, in the dark instead of during daylight), the rules stayed the same.

2. Freeze Tag. Like regular tag, except there were two "its", a good and a bad. If the bad it tagged you, you were frozen like a statue. If the good it got to you before the bad it got to them, you were free to run again.

3. Duck Hunt. Classic. I loved this game, and got pretty good at it before our system broke!

4. Tetris. Love, love, love this game. Troy and I have an ongoing competition on his cell phone for high score!

5. Clue. If I were to play Clue now, I'm sure I'd find it quite boring. But at the time, I loved solving those mysteries!

6. Uno. My grandmother taught me to play Uno when I was 5 or 6, and we played it at nearly every family gathering from there on out!

7. Crazy Eights. I really got into crazy eights when I was sick in bed with whooping cough at about age 10. I would beg anyone around to come play it with me.

8. House. My friends and I used to love to play house, and what made it even better was my TCB (Taking Care of Baby) doll. This doll would cry to be changed, fed, or put to sleep. It was my favourite doll.

9. School. When I was really young I was forever begging my mother to play "school" with me, when my younger brother was born, I decided that I was too old to be the student and self-promoted myself to teacher, with him as my pupil. Poor boy!

10. Songs. This was played with my grandfather. I would think of a topic or word, as random as I could, and he would think of a song to go with it! I never won, that man knew a song for everything!
