Ten on Tuesday - Games I loved as a child

Happy Tuesday everyone! So for this week we were prompted to list 10 games we loved to play as a child. I am not too sure if I will be able to list 10 but I am going to give it a try.

1. Skip Rope - I used to tie one end to our garage door handle and then we could jump rope when there was only 2 of us.

2. Pictionary - I loved sitting down with my family and a few friends and playing this game. It was always good for a lot of laughs.

3. Monopoly - This was another family favourite. A classic that I don't think I could ever get bored with.

4. Scrabble - I would sit down with my mom to play Scrabble. She always beat me but it was still fun!

5. Mouse trap - My brother and I loved playing this game. I have been thinking lately I would love to get this one for my kids

6. Solitaire - I could have played this for hours when I was younger. Nothing better than playing solitaire while up at a cottage.

7. Super Mario Brothers - My brother had the old school Nintendo. I loved the super Mario games. I wasn't into playing video games a lot but loved playing these ones and have even purchased it for the Nintendo Wii to bring back great memories.

8. Trivial Pursuit - This one was more for when I was older. I played the original version but would love to get some of the other ones like the Disney one.

9. Connect 4 - What can I say about this one....it's simple but fun.

10. Milton Bradleys Super Simon - I loved this game! I only wish my parents had kept it so my kids could play with it now.

Well I guess I could remember 10 games I loved to play. So now it's your turn...what games did you love?


  1. I remember being on a solitary jag for a period of time in my younger days and learning a dozen different variations. I can only remember one way to play now.

  2. Great list Jen! I am a trivial pursuit fanatic!! And I have to admit that skipping was the one girly thing I loved too :)

  3. I loved Simon too. Skipping rope was somethign I loved. The chants/rhymes, good old double dutch. Have you watched the Disney movie Jump In with your girl yet?
