Games you played as a kid?

Recommended Posts

We used to play this game called Auntie Marmite. I think that's how it was spelt?

 

Basically, it was like hide and seek, but in the dark. One person would go out the room while the others would hide inside. The one outside would count and then then turn the light off and enter the room to try and locate the hidees. This evolved into something a bit more violent when in our early-mid teens in that the hidees would attack the person outside the room when they entered. All good fun.

 

Used to play Kick the Can in the school play ground. Basically tick with a can. Anyone who was struck with the can then got battered.

 

We also had a golley pit in school. It was at the bottom of a set of stairs which led to a basement underneath the woodwork block. If your bag went down there...

We had a game called "survivor"

 

There was a Footy, hockey, and basketball pitch/court painted onto the floor of the school on the same area but in different colours so loads of lines. That was the arena, you needed at least 4 people to play, but the upper limit was variable. There was a team of 2 who were the "getters" and everyone else was a survivor.

 

Running only along the lines the getters had to trap you inbetween the two of them them so you couldn't escape. That trapped person then became a getter also so there were 3 to take the next person. The last solo person who wasn't a getter was the Survivor and therefore the winner

Remember kick the can very well.

Mainly played cricket in the summer and f******l the rest of the year.

Pooh stick - not throwing sticks in rivers, no, this was hardcore, dogshit on a stick and chase someone with it!

 

Donkey derby - running through back gardens late at night using whatever means/materials you could find to get over the next high fence.

 

Wraps - pack of cards whacked on your knuckles if you pulled the lowest card in the deck.

 

Slaps - face, not hands.

 

Peg-gun battles - regular thing in the 80's, however i kinda bastardised the game by not attaching the peg spring to the elastic band. I would use pliers to cut the spring and create a pellet instead.

German Bastards & Man hunt

 

Haha!

 

In the german huts,

where they hang you by the nuts

and they hang dirty pictures on the wall!

Where your hair grows thick,

from your belly to your prick

and they play ping-pong with your balls!

Spotlight. Team-based hide and seek game in the dark ideally in a forest, usually in a campsite.

 

Everyone carries a torch. One person uses their torch to try and catch people, everytime someone is caught they join the hunting team. Last person to be found (person who everyone thinks is genuinely lost/dead) wins. Was always fun because if you were caught by a torch in the open you'd run for it and at other times you'd be hiding behind a tree hoping the person a metre away doesn't hear you breathe.

was manhunt the same as IRA?

you all have letters and your entire team spells a word. the enemy team must capture you and extract your letter so as to complete the word.

 

Braveheart

all boys split into two "armies" and charge at eachother across the f**tba*l pitch into glorious warfare. we did not play this often but it was quite the event.

That was German Bastards to me. (Not sure if Walton Reds verson of German bastards was the same).

 

Manhunt was effectivly the same just with out the word or the beating element. You just had to grab anoth team member and shout manhunt 123. We used to play with teams of about 7 or 8 a side an would have a area of about a half square mile or so you couldent go out of.

 

We also used to do that strange yodle sound to call everybody in if somebody had to go in for tea or smoething.

Lef is spot on, thats how you play German Bastards, one team goes out with a word they've come up with, they each have a letter, we chase them down, beat the letter out of them then eventually we come up with the word. Repeat till you get called in for tea.

 

Manhunt is just without the password.

 

Fucking loved playing them games
