childhood games

Childhood Games:

Do u remember?

-laying goosey eggs in hide and seek
-the rendezvous of the tip of your moccasin shoe with someone’s butt a.k.a “Bendings”
-chobo mob? Chobo ngoto?
- playing nyabs? Or bano? With terminologies like: sugary’s, bombies, oily’s, spidery’s, steeley’s
Behind the pill
crackings no payings?
(Water always tasted so nice after a game of bano. U’d rinse inadequately and drink away.
During the term of bano’s many a pockets would get torn cause of the marbles)

-shake? Double line free pass
-British bulldog (I was a pros in this one! Sure the chubby one could not run but I could sure pull down people’s P.E shorts and waddle on to safe zone!)
-flickings!!!!
-“hicho!” or “Hee” the same as tag
-hee of the feet
-cops and robbers
-doctor doctor: a group of like 5-10 kids hold hands then u all intertwine and loop away. And u call the doctor to come and unfold y’all
-Remote control games
-going to sarit centre or yaya to the entertainment arcade. Or pop-in or Nairobi sports house …games like shinobi, mortal kombat kicked ass!!!
-game and watch-akina donkey kong!
-gameboys
-ken and Barbie…Kati/bladder for the girls that is!!!!!!
-foota
From a ball made of sisal rope and papers.
Or from many paper packets of juice- I was so sporty then what ever happened???
-flicking each other with the school tie. For added leverage u’d add water and mud at the end
-riding car tires with fence posts. Oh and for that extra smooth ride a bit of water inside the tire would do the trick
-table tennis
-board games and card games
-broken telephone
-Dancing chairs-or what’s its name??? U all go round chairs till y’all sit down
-magic: at one point we were all magicians-heck I know a few of you who were kiini macho fans!
-bic pen. metal wire. Orange peels-shoot to kill
-paper planes
-kiss commander promise
-statue
-G.I Joe action figure
-legos
-toy guns(I still got me one)


oh the joy of childhood. The innocence….

LMAO @ Saru

I also wondered about that Kiss Commander thing.
Glad somebody set the record straight

Shame on you Nick for messing up our childhood memories ati Kiss Commander! :)

Some on the list I have never heard of..and one game was either missing or you know it by a diff name. The game played with the inner lining of a soda bottle top: we called it Paa.

But Kati and Bladder rock
