After reading Erainn's comment on playing British Bulldog on the roof of Cole st school. I wondered how many of the old games will or have been, lost over the years. It seems if it doesn't plug into a games console nowadays, kids aren't interested.
I propose a list of all the old games before they're lost forever.
Erainn started the ball rolling with British Bulldog, maybe a brief description with the name of the game if anyone is interested?
I'll add "Kick the Can" a game of hide and seek where a home base (usually a chalked square) was the place where you were imprisoned. I had an old can standing in it. Once captured by whoever was "IT" you had to remain there until one of your friends kicked the can over without getting caught themselves. Once the can was kicked, everyone in the square ran off. Not to be caught until the can was replaced. The object was to catch everyone and place them in the square.
