you had one person "on it" and people would go and hide. the people hiding would have to get too and touch a certain point (we used a pole) before the person on it could run and touch you. anyone caught has to stand by the pole, then when someone touches the pole without being cuaght everyone caught beforehand is rereleased

classic game:cool:

Sounds a bit like how we used to play hide and seek - except the first person caught would end the game ("all in all in mickey mouse is callin") and be the next it.

Although I'm sure we didn't use the word it.

My school had the entirely original game called "Wangers." No kidding. Though at the time I don't think we were aware of the very similar swear word.

That and linky, which sounds a lot like MattG's releasester game.

What did you have to do to play Wangers? (And try to resist the temptation to be rude!!)

I never played - it was mostly a boy's game, but the name has always stuck with me. As far as I can tell, it seemed to involve throwing (wanging) a tennis ball from one end of the playground to the other, and if someone didn't catch it, then the other team got a point. It also seemed to have lots of shouting, including the obvious "wangerrrrrr!!!!" and chanting "T-I-M-E..." ad nauseam if someone was taking a long time to throw.

Oh, and there was Kiss, Cuddle or torture - I was good at that one!

We had dead serious conker leagues and a Lord of the rings game which was great. There was also a fad with 'pogs' at one stage.

Conkers were banned at my primary school because they made too much mess. We had an absolutely fantastic conker tree at my secondary school, was absolutely massive, but they cut all the branches off it in my final year because they were overhanging the path and "might be a danger to someone if branches fell off." Plus all the townies would come in and steal the conkers and have fights with the boys, which was another reason, I reckon.

Slightly different at our school then, the conker tournament was organised by the school! God, it was way too serious when I look back, everyone was way too competitive. The same with pogs.

thats forty-forty . When the person on spots someone, they have to touch the pole and say "forty-forty i see <whoever>" and when you get to the pole without being caught you say "forty-forty i save all"

i think i know that game.... we called it 40-40.

the person who was 'it' would try and spot people hiding, but only after counting to 40. and if he/she shouted '40-40 I SEE (YOUR NAME) HIDING IN (WHERE YOU ARE HIDING)' correctly, you had to make a dash for that point before he/she could touch you.
