Guitar hero is fun, but what about the old games?



I spent the afternoon playing my niece's new Wii. She got wii sport and guitar hero. My favorite game happened to be guitar hero as I managed to get 93% correct on "Eye of the Tiger" on my second attempt. Boxing was fun - although I think I should have fared better that the controller would register. Bowling was ok, and after all the excitement of the other games, probably the best way to wind down on a Sunday afternoon.

The best part of the afternoon was hanging out with my son. It made me long for the days of simple games: Gin Rummy, Scrabble and Old Maid. What games do you miss from your childhood?

Old Maid....gosh, it's been a while....

What do I miss?

Carroms.

*laughing* Not that you'd know what that is.

Marbles would be fun.
I have marbles.....I could make that one happen....
