Boomers – Remember These Games?
Did you go to your friend’s house to ask “Can Jimmy come out to play”? Some of my favorite childhood memories include playing games. Games of all kinds. Outdoor games like Stoop Tag or Sardines. Inside games like Parcheesi and Yahtzee. My family was really into games. We had badminton championships and frisbee tournaments. We had marathon Monopoly games, where you would leave the board up and intact so you could go eat dinner. Then come back and pickup where you left off (hoping your sister didn’t sneak in to alter the set-up). Our imagination was key to some of the games we made up. Like a spy game played around the lake where I grew up called “Something is Rotten in Denmark”. The sky, literally, was the limit for our gamesmanship. This blog will share with you some of those memories, using images and storytelling. We invite you to join us with your pictures and remembrances as well.
