      I voted for capture the flag.

      We also played Butts Up (the sadistic version) and Over the Line a lot.

        Does Dodgeball count? If so, that.

              dodgeball was awesome on a trampoline. Have 1 person throwing and you jumping and doing flips to dodge it.


              a twist on bottle rocket wars. We called it bottle rocket russian roulette. You stand in a circle and drop a bottle rocket with no stick in the middle and whoever it explodes on is out. We were forced to stop playing when it went up someones shorts and exploded and they had burns and a welt.

                We played some hybrid of soccer and basketball in our gym in high school... can't remember the name, but it was the shit. Got pretty physical too.

                Of the "standard" games, its dodgeball by a mile.

                  We lived outside of Wichita when I was growing up in a neighborhood of about 20 houses each on about an acre of land. It was the perfect set-up for games like this. We were all over the Kick the Can and Capture the Flag until we all turned 12. Then we discovered Spin the Bottle and that was the end of THOSE games.

                    We'd play 2-on-2 football and basketball at the babysitters. We did a lot of these games listed, but football and basketball were played the most.

                      We played kick the can all the time on my block. You had one person who was it and everybody else went and hid while the person who was it counted to say 50 with a foot on the can (we used a Folger's coffee can). Then the person who was it would go looking for people. If they saw you, they had to run back to the can and put their foot on it and say your name and where you were. The goal was to get the person who was it far enough away from the can so you could run and kick it before they got back to it to spot you. If you kicked it, the game started over and that person was still it.

                      Loved that game!

                        Kick the can?!? Seriously? How old are you people? 106?

                        On the playground it was a lot of kickball and basketball. When it snowed and they plowed the snow off of the blacktop, we occasionally played King of the Mountain on the huge piles just off the edge.
