Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I enjoyed ball tag, but being that I wasn't athletically inclined, that could suck fairly easily. ):

As a fat kid that had a little speed, I enjoyed some Red Rover; however, my favorite was this big ass wooden ship jungle gym we had that I would express my true monkey talents on.

Let's see the quality impulse buys!

We usually played a game called "Butts up". People would stand up by an outside wall of the building (facing the wall) and others would throw tennis balls and try to hit them. The last person out got to pick the next group to stand up there.

I guess it was kinda like a dodgeball/racquetball/handball hybrid.

We played marbles quite often as well.

The swings!
And, when I was in early elementary, we had a GIANT tire half buried in the ground. I was so proud of myself when I was finally able to climb up on the inside, and sit with my butt on one side and my feet on the other. ^_^

You left off the ultimate childhood flight simulator: the swing set. Nothing was more fun than trying to go over the bar... and then jumping off at the peak height.
