90s kids are lucky! We spent a lot of time outdoors playing and socializing with our friends. A lot of the games we played stimulated our brains and allowed us to exercise while having fun!
Who are Simon and Jacques and why are they making us lift up our arms or jump?
“Tag” is a world-famous game! One player is the police, and he has to run around and tag or “freeze” the thieves on the spot.
Once the main player says “freeze” or “1,2,3, soleil,” nobody can move. There was always this annoying kid who would make us laugh so that we lose.

That was one of the best games ever! A real player knows all the answers by heart!
The best part of the game was drawing the hopscotch using colorful Crayola sidewalk chalk.
The players form a line, and the first person whispers a message to the ear of the next person in the line, and so on and so forth. The last player announces the initial message to the entire group.
We used to play this game mostly at birthday parties. Now that we look at it, it is kind of similar to class registration days.
Do you remember when parents used to say that “Yu-Gi-Oh cards lal chitan”?
