    Surprised no one mentioned cricket....:eek:

    When I was in play school, I had exactly 2 friends at home since the rest of the kids were 4-5 years older. We used to spend time trying to find branches and twigs shaped like guns, followed by running around playing "chor police".

    Then there was the time my cousin, my sister and I found 'Harvest moon' on PC using an SNES emulator collection my dad bought from who-knows-where.
    :cute:
    We didn't know how to save and tried to finish the game on a non-stop marathon since we were scared there would be another outage (being summer vacation and all). Each of us used to do 3 hour 'shifts' round the clock to finish the game but that friggin outage always happened when we were *so close* to ending the game.:cry:

    Ludo - Probably the first game I was introduced to. By my mother. Started playing it as soon as I learnt number and addition. The two of us invented some of our own rules. And yes, the two of us play pretty fast, as JD666 mentioned.. :cool:
    Snakes and Ladders - not so much, but played it usually when I was alone. I would single-handedly play on behalf of say, 3 or 4 players. And made sure only I won ;) :p
    Fire and Ice - which we called "vish - amrit" considering our limited knowledge of English at that age.
    What-color-you-want ( the tippy tippy tap game :p ) (Man, what names we had.. ;))
    Chess
    Carom
    Hopscotch - Believe it or not but my siblings and I had actually painted the whole thing up on our terrace so then we dint need to re-draw it every time we played.. We dint even have to worry about rain. We would actually keep the same game going over days..
    Playing cards - Played a hell lot of it. Saturday nights were the 'cards night'. Mind you, no money involved, only a whole lot of fun. Especially with my mother trying to cheat her way into winning and my father catching her every single time :)
    Human chain ( or chain chain )
    Shooting - with rubber bands and 'bullets' of paper.. Played it with neighbors, across the terraces..
    Corner corner
    Tag
    Hide and seek - I was the in-house champion :cool:
    High and low..
    .. And a lot of games we invented..

    In school, badminton, hand ball, basket ball (was really bad at it :p )..

    The virtual ones - contra, tennis, mario
    Cricket - only till I was in 7th standard

    Monopoly was actually introduced to me very recently by JD666 . What I used to play as a kid was an Indianised local version of it called - Business.

    Once I had my hands on a computer, I was addicted to minesweeper. May be I still am :p

    Cycling was only for mondays.. Because the markets were closed on mondays and that was when 'girls' could be allowed to cycle around..

    I loved playing the doctor when I was in nursery/kindergarten however, the fun did not last for long as I was soon put in a catholic, boys only school. :(

    When I went to college (which till my penultimate year was a boys only college :thumbdown:), I met my girl friend (now wife) during my final year, I redeveloped a liking for playing the doctor and thats when the grades went down. This continued while I was pursuing my Masters (I coaxed her to do the same course as me and lugged her with me to Delhi :p).

    Life started playing dirty and thats when I learnt playing games like iski-topi-uske-sar.

    Other than these, the boring games I have played as a young boy were football, basketball, cricket, squash and was trained in hand-to-hand combat while growing up in a boys only school. :D

    oh oh oh... I just remembered a game we used to play in school!

    Bank River Water Sea!

    This was played on 4 steps and you had to jump from one side to the other!

    You have my full sympathy... We started playing throw ball with the girls in school.. And pretty soon all the guys from the cricket and football games joined in!

    kya :cool: hain hum..!!

    I realised I have actually still left out so many more games..
    For example, in those free periods in the class, there were games like cross n not's, "16 parchi dhapp" (I know its a weird name), "raja mantri chor sipahi", "name, place, animal thing" which used to be "naam, vastu, sthan, film" when I was useless with my English, join the dots..
    Then there were our lunch period games like gallery (dont think any of you guys will know about it :p), kho kho.. A hell lot of running around - which we fondly called "pakdam pakdai"
