Growing up in the 90s, the only live access you had to your friends was seeing them at school, or in the streets, where you spent much of time playing and creating games for life enjoyment.
Kickball holds the same rules as baseball, only you have to kick the ball that is pitched to you. Another fun rule of kickball is that in order to get the kicker out, you must either catch their ball before it lands on the ground, or you must touch them with the ball in order to get them out by throwing it at them. At the beginning of the game, choose how many endings you will have and whichever team scores the most points win.
This an age old classic. There are many parks that provide basketball courts for recreational use, or you can find a friend who has a basketball goal at their house. It is more fun when you mix it up and play differnet basketball games such as H-O-R-S-E.
3. Water Wars
This is a great game for the Summer. Water Wars is like dodge ball but with water balloons and water guns. For this game, at the sound of a whistle everyone rushes to a basket full of water balloons. It is an all out brawl until the baskets are empty. There are no winners, just a really good time in the Summer sun. The best time to play is on the Fourth of July.
4. Hide And Go Seek
Hide and Go Seek is a game where players attempt to conceal their locations as the “counter” tries to seek them. They must make it back to home base before being captured.
5. Red Rover Red Rover
Red Rover Red Rover is a fun children’s game where each team stand linked arm in arm and call someone over from the other team to attempt to break the link. If that person breaks the link, they can bring back one individual. If they do not break the link, they become apart of that team.
6. Touch Back
Touch Back is an every man for himself football brawl. This game begins with someone taking a football and throwing it in the air, whoever catches it has the option of tossing it back into the crowd or making their best run for the endzone. If you are lucky enough to score a touchdown before being tackled you score. Then you throw it back into the pit. Be the first to 21 and win the game.
