What are some old games you had as a kid? I had [link] (Bill Ding), [link] (Don't Break The Ice), and [link] (Cooties), among other toys.

Just want to get the nostalgia up and running here.

Are we talking board games or video games here? =P

We still have a few of the old boardgames from when I was a kid here. Lessee, we had Scrabble and Monopoly (we used to play the latter a lot at Christmas with the rest of the family), Kerplunk (where you had to pull sticks out of a ball full of marbles) a buildable marble run, Wiggly Worms, Crocodile Dentist, Mouse Trap, Save Me Bacon, Rattle Me Bones (a bit like Buckaroo but with a skeleton pirate instead of a mule)...
We also had this one called Splat or something, where you made little bugs out of playdough and if you landed on the wrong square someone got a plastic hand out and squashed your bug :D And we had another one where the board had a tower in the middle of it and you had to conquer the tower, but the other player could use a barrel on a chain attached to it to knock all your guys off the board.

Video games.. The first one I remember us having was an Amstrad, and we also had a Commodore 64 and a couple of Amigas at one point, as well as a bunch of those handheld game things. Aside from this I grew up playing SNES and Master System/Megadrive games. We don't have any of the old computers now but we kept all the consoles :)

I've always enjoyed the Alex Kidd games, and still have them all in my attic. I played them nonstop when I was a youngling. Alex Kidd in Shinobi World was my most favorite :D I just wished that he got alot more reputation that he should've gotten :'( I'd love to see Sega bring him back.

Paper Boy. Ghost 'n goblins, Sonic the Hedgehog II. Donkey Kong, Pac-man. Number munchers. Math blaster. Super solvers. Some Carmen SanDiego or other by Broderbund. <- for videogames. I didn't have galaga but used to play it almost every chance I could get at the arcade. That and to a lesser extent moon patrol. As far as boardgames, I had Don't Break The Ice and Cooties too but Bill Ding is one I'm not familiar with. I'll have to look it up. I think I had Guess Who and candyland too but what I used to really get into was battleship. I never exactly had my own gameboard though but I'd play it at school on rainy days and at the rec center or other people's houses who did have the board.

The only really rememberable thing that comes to mind was legos. I really loved to build different mechanics and stuff. I even made toy guns and those little cars which you can pull back and they would go off once you let them go (by using a rubber band thing). It was fun.

I had a Space 1999 ship that glowed orange in the dark -- well, stripes on it did.
I also had a set of soldiers on a Moon Base from Sears, which entertained me for ages.
I was an aspiring magician from early childhood, so I often bought magic tricks from Adams & Adams, as well as some the "TV Magic" kits. And I added to that a ventriloquist dummy.
On a more traditional note, I had a good old-fashioned Jacob's Ladder. Simple, but it kept me entertained me for hours at a time.

Haha the British version of laser tag was so messed up... It had a robotic voice when you turn the sensor on and said "Hello dickhead" - I've no idea what the creator of it was thinking at the time.

This topic reminds me, you know what the game Ludo is called in Dutch? "Mens-erger-je-niet", or Dude-don't-be-frustrated.

There is honestly no more honest reflection of what a game is like by its title in the history of games. And yet for some reason, people still buy it.

Anyway, this game: [link]

It was so much fun. In the final week of preschool before the summer holidays we would just play games, watch videos and generally do fun stuff in the classroom. Someone would bring this game to school and we'd play it all the time, it was by far one of the most popular activities.

Then we got older, and we outgrew Louie.

And then we became adults and turned it into a drinking game! It's the circle of life :meow:
