    I used to live in Reddich when I was young but moved to Nottm when I was 7. When I moved to Nottm everybody called the game tig 'dobby', there were loads of variations, dobby-off ground, dobby little-man (thats all I can remember).

    I used to play bumper car- a skipping game, and play with elastic ropes, like cats cradle but with ppl's legs instead of fingers (I hope you know what I mean).

    I loved that. We called it 'french skipping' in my playground, and you had make diamonds with the elastic and then jump out and land 'on the rails'!! I think that was banned at some point though because some people were really crap at it and kept falling over on the tarmac and grazing their knees!! :rolleyes:

    Surely not because it was a violent game? Or was it because of playground politics (i.e. not letting people you don't like to join in?)

    Yeah, it was too violent!! :rolleyes: Basically the whole school played it so when there were only a few people left running up and down they got viciously (sp?) attacked by loads and loads of kids!! Actually loads of things got banned in our playground... british bulldog, yo-yos, french skipping, conkers.... and the girls got banned from going onto the field when the boys were playing football just incase we got hit by the ball!!!!! How bad is that?!!

    2 skipping ropes, we used to have really long ropes so that 10 of us could skip at the same time...but the tall people(not me) always had to be th ones with the rope!

    Really bad...thats why kids these days play with gameboys in the plAYGROUND.

    we were banned from bringing toys in because some kids would feel left out (if they had strict parents or could not afford toys) so that made us use our imagination!

    We used to play chase - boys v girls. The entire yard would play with the two short ends as den (ie safe). If you got caught you got taken to stand next to one of the sets of rings painted on the wall, when someone else got caught you could move onto the second set of rings and when someone else got caught you were free again

    We also "played" at kicking a hole through the wall in the corner of the yard where the outside toilets used to be (there were 2 walls that stuck out from the external wall that you could hide behind left over from the demolition). We never got through but there was always hope....

    Used to play "May I" too (no idea what this was really about - we used to make it up as we went along....like a very strange version of whats the time mr wolf)

    Oh and it's not "tig" it's tick.

    And "tick" you've got the oggy (didn't have lurgy in our school)
