Do any of you remember the games you played as a child? If any of you, like me, were born in the 90s or before that era, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.

Children nowadays don’t really know the meaning of real games apart from what is on their iPads, PlayStation and smart phones. The average child now rarely plays outside and if he/she does get out of the house, it’s to huddle with their friends over yet another iPad or mobile to play digital games.

Back then, playing games was a collective and outdoor activities rather than hunch over the TVs or computers.

As more and more arcades and play designated areas take up the digital route, when it comes to games, one can’t help but reminisce about when playing games was as simple as dodging a paper balls.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane of those games played in the good old times.

One acts as the eagle, one the hen and the rest the chickens. The game goes like this: the “hen” and the “chickens” stand in a line with the “hen” in the very front spreading both arms to protect the “chickens” and each one clasping the clothes tail of the one right in front of it. The “eagle” should seek every opportunity to catch the “chicken”. If one “chicken” is caught, “it” should exchange the role with the “eagle”.

The game is typically played by three players with a rope of about 5–6 feet in length that has been tied into a circle. Two of the participants face each other about 3 feet apart, with their feet together, and position the rope around their ankles so that it is taut. The third player (the jumper) then stands between the two sides of the rope and must accomplish a specific series of moves without making an error or pausing.
