Anyone else bust their arms playing Red Rover?

Two groups line up opposite each other, link arms and call someone from the opposition over who has to run and smash through the line of people. Always turned out pretty violent for 8 year olds.

One guy at my school used to do a forward flip over peoples arms. There was war over whether that was allowed or not.

Beat the Letter. You have two team runners and catchers, the runners would each have a letter from a word and the catchers had to chase them down and "beat the letter" out of them to find out what the word was. To be honest the letter bit tended to go out the window pretty quickly and it usually descended into essentially a 6 vs 6 fight. Not surprisingly we got banned from playing it.

Moggy. I played this in the Scouts rather than school. It was similar to Bulldog I guess but the catchers had to lift the runners off the ground for a count of three. There weren't any rules as such and games usually ended with this one kid crying so we'd have to call it off.

Murderball. Another game I played in Scouts. It was essentially rugby only played in a wood floored hall and again with no rules really. The aim was to get the ball to your oponents end of the hall and touch the wall with it to score a point.

Bulldog
What's the time mr wolf.

From lower school
Kiss chase and knicker chase - both of these would now get your parents and social services called into school and see you put on some sort of education rehabilitation program.

Line Outs was the main game at our school. We had quite a big playground and there just so happened to be a line at either end. You'd have people who were the chasers and people who were runners and you had to run from one end of the playground to the other without getting caught. If you were caught then you had to join the chasers.

So basically it was a game of who could you strawberry float over in your path to the end. I think I only ever won a few times because I was so slow in comparison to the more sporty kids.

When I was at junior school, every lunch time was "Nelly", until the game got banned. The whole class played this. One person started as Nelly and if you put your arms around someone else, they too became Nelly, joining you in the quest to get the rest of the class. Similar to bulldog, but the arena for Nelly was not limited to the playground, but the whole school. As we would not abide to the headmaster's wishes of limiting the game to our playground, Nelly was banned. [emoji20]

Yes?

We had a game called fumbles. Can't remember the exact rules but you threw a tennis ball against a wall and everyone would have to try and catch it. Either both hands (no bounces) or 1 hand (bounces). If you dropped your catch (or missed the wall with your throw), you had to go stand against the rule, and the game would continue. To get off the wall you either had to catch the ball (starting on the wall) or be hit by the ball 3 times.

Also we called the lamp post game 40/40- but I think the chaser had to actually touch you, not just see you.

I cant remember what we called it but we played a game where you had to kick the ball and hit it off the wall, then the person after you had to do the same playing the ball wherever it landed, miss the wall and you lost a life. Easy except where we played had 2 wrinkles to the game. 1. There was a fence about 6 feet back from the wall, on the other side was also school grounds so we could use it but the grass was never cut so getting the ball over the fence meant the next player up was playing from the deep grass. 2. The end wall we played on was pebble dash and it wrapped around slightly so the first foot or so of the main wall was also pebble dash, anywhere with pebble dash was legal so if you were good you could hit the pebble dash on the main wall and send the ball the length of the playground so the next player would be across the playground or by the school gates and have to hit a tiny strip of wall.

Good times except I was gooseberry fool and spent most of my time watching everyone else play as I was inevitably one of the first out.

Rollercoaster.
A huge line of kids in the playground holding onto each other, a lot like a conga line, but instead of slowly dancing, everyone ran, following the person in front. The line would swing around wildly, even violently as it turned and swept across the playground.

It got me sent to the hospital one day.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

We also had a rule for after the bell had gone (end of breaks) that whoever had touched the ball last had to fetch it. This also applied to deflections, so if you could twat it off someone hard enough then they'd have a long walk to fetch the ball, and would be late for class.

Of course, you might miss... :dread:

We called Tag or It "Had". The main one we played was Family Had, where one person started and gradually caught people, adding them to the it team. We also had Prison Had, where when you were caught you got put in a little alcove in the playground with an outdoor light above the entrance. A small team was it, and the runners could empty the prison by jumping up and touching the light.

Football games: Wembley and Wembley Doubles, with the keeper playing ref/linesman and shouting "Penalties all round!" if there was goalhanging. Sixty Seconds, where the keeper counted down from sixty and you had to score one goal in a minute, then two, and so on. Headers and Volleys was Sixty Seconds but you could only score a header or volley. Also Goal to Goal if you were in a small group.

Not so much a playground game as a classroom game, but did anyone play Wink Murder?

My dad used to play a game that was I believe what they call Buck Buck in Fat Albert. You had two teams one team had one player facing a wall then the next guy would put his head between the front guys legs and so on until everybody was in a chain then players from the other team would leap frog onto the chain in an attempt to break it. They got banned from playing it, not surprised really as there was so much potential for life altering/threatening injury.

Moggy wrote:Releaser – A bit like hide and seek. One person would face a lamppost and count to 100 (loudly!) while everyone else went and hid around the street. The object was to get back to the lamppost and say “One, Two, Three, Releaser” without the person who was “it” spotting you and getting back to the lamppost before you. If he got there first and called your name and location then you were his “prisoner” and had to sit on the wall until the end of the game. Basically if the person who was “it” was a faster runner than you, then you would have to run and hide somewhere else and hope he didn’t spot where you moved to.

If there were prisoners and you managed to sneak back to the lamppost or outran him, then you would shout “One, Two, Three, RELEASE ALL PRISONERS!” and everyone would run off and hide again.

The best game of that we ever had was when a friend of mine just stood behind the kid who was “it” and instantly released himself when the kid finished counting to 100. :lol:


We called this Lurky and later Manhunt when I was older but that involved beating people into submission before they returned.

And the Wembley game you're all talking about was Cuppies.

The only ones I remember playing were 'kiss chase' and 'whats the time Mr wolf?'.

I was 28 years old.
