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.
These are the toys and games that stick in my mind as favorites: the Easy Bake Oven, my barbies, playing kick the can outside, and all the board games that we had as kids. I loved playing Mystery Date, Operation, Yahtzee, Risk, Rack-o, Uncle Wiggily, Clue, and Monopoly.
I did a search and found the following two YouTube videos that may bring back some memories. Did you own any of these original version games? 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.
Remember Mystery Date? I always wanted to date or win? the "skier guy" but usually ended up with "dud guy".
Here is one more video I found (three merged clips) of a few more Milton Bradley games. We had the above mentioned games as well as the following: Chutes and Ladders, Go To The Head Of The Class, Candy Land, and possibly Game Of The States (it just sounds so familiar). Did you have any of these?
