Ten on Tuesday…

…the one with all the games.

One of my favorite photos of R and Winkie – her sweater was knit by Carole

Before we get started – did you know that SbJL now offers notions bags that fit into your box bag just so?  Go ahead and take a look – but come back because I have a pretty good list this week!  (I’ll be putting up more pouches too so keep checking back!)

This week, our directive is ’10 Favorite Games from Your Childhood’.  I was more of a reader and less of a game-player but I’m willing to give it a shot – ready?

1.  Solitaire.  I played it for hours.

2.  Ignore-your-sister.  Did that for hours too…

3.  The Uncle Wiggily Board Game – I’m pretty sure I drove my grandmother nuts with this one.

I’m pretty sure Carole meant ‘board game’ or ‘card game’ or ‘play outside game’ when she came up with this topic, however I didn’t really *do* that so I’m having a problem with keeping to non-computer games which means I’m going to have to break apart from the pack (again…I know) and go with some electronics since I AM a child of the 80’s and have had a computer or a gaming console since the Commodore 64 and Atari 2600 came out.

4.  Pac Man

5.  The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy – I loved text-based adventure or mystery games.  There was another one that was about Hobbits but I cannot find it for the life of me.

6.  Zelda – I played this for days when it came out.  Back when Nintendo didn’t have the ability to save your progress and you had to put the controller in a very safe place if you wanted to do other things – you know, like eat. and sleep.

7.  Mario!!

8.  Pitfall!!

9.  Asteroids!!

10.  Space Invaders!!

There you go, 10 games from my childhood.  Do you have any?

    Parcheezi, Solitaire, Xeri ( A Greek card game), Go Fish, Yahtzee. Outside there was tag, dodge ball, tetherball, four square, hide-and-seek on a school campus. Made for lots of hiding places!

    I COMPLETELY forgot about Uncle Wiggly! I used to play that with my cousins. A lot. We still play Monopoly and Parcheesi with The Boy.

    YES!!!! I LOVED the Hitchhiker’s game!!! And now I have to pretend it doesn’t live on my computer until after work! I too was an atari fiend, but I have to say the games I miss most are Q-bert and Space Taxi (on the commodore 128)
