London Bridge is falling down

Landmark is about to blow its thirtieth candle soon. Three decades that passed like a breeze. We can totally understand the nostalgic wave that you are experiencing at the moment. From children to adolescents, from adolescents to adults is what we might have evolved according to the norms of society, but as we all know the child in all of us hates to grow up. Be it your first book from Landmark, your first GI Joe set or your fist Barbie let’s do a time travel and glance back at the three decades of childhood we’ve gone through.

Looking back at some games that the digitally fluent kids of today might never understand

  • Musical Chairs –This was a test to your reflexes as you had to grab the nearest chair the moment the music stops before someone else does.
  • Dodge ball- This was the best way to polish your aiming skills and your dodging skills.
  • Catch and cook- Speed and agility was the key to be a champ in this one
  • Hopscotch- Dropping the stone in the correct while hopping on one leg needed some serious skill.
  • Lock and key- Trying to rescue your locked friend while saving yourself from the denner. Can’t get cooler than this.
  • Dog and the bone- This game brought all our animal instincts to life. Trying to pick the object(bone) before your opponent. This was the first lesson on how animals fight for survival.
  • Hide and seek- Does this need a description at all?
  • Land and water- Dodging the denner, climbing back on land from water. We could surely put Ninjas to shame with our skills back then.
  • Blind man’s buff- Identifying the direction of sound. Isn’t this how bats operate?
  • Doctor doctor- This might sound silly to the modern generation but we all know how cool it actually was.
  • Chain chain- This tag team chase taught us Teamwork better than anything else.
  • Kho-kho- On your toes always!
  • One-legged chaser- Also know as Langdi .When you increase the difficulty level of catch and cook.
  • Pass the parcel- Time to embarrass the unfortunate ones.
  • Chinese whispers- This is where we sharpened our listening skills from.
  • Skipping- One of the coolest cardios even today.
  • Kiti-kiti- Building a human train with your team, while the other jump on your back was dangerous indeed but always worth the risk.
  • Statue-While your friends had their best moments fun testing your patience
  • Lagori- A sharp aim, an agile body and a quick presence of mind is all what you needed to ace this wonderful game.
  • Fugdi-Is your head spinning already?
  • Gilli danda-We bet you still cherish playing the rawest form of cricket and baseball.
  • Red rover- Nothing can beat charging like a bull to break the chain.
  • Duck duck goose- Start running the moment you hear ‘Goose’!
  • Marbles- As raw and pure as it gets, no game of today can compare to this beautiful game.
  • WWE trump cards- When you have most players with great stats, you are lucky indeed.
  • Antakshari- The best pastime for any given occasion.
  • London Bridge is falling down- This game had different versions, but the fun never varied.
  • Drop the hanky- The weakest runner was always the first target.
  • Sets- The local version of poker, this chit-game could be played for hours at a stretch.
  • Wink murder- Reading about Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot wasn’t enough, so we had to play this game.
