Fun & Games: Back in the Day

Friday, I was reminiscing with some friends and we were recalling some of the games we used to play when we were in middle school. We were having a lot of fun thinking up things we used to play. I thought sharing them might bring back some memories for some of you as well. So, here we go. Let's see if we can have some adolescent fun.

First up....MASH. Do you remember this game? You would right MASH at the top of your paper and then fill in a variety of categories to see what your future looked like. If you were a fan of MASH as a kid, then I've got some great news for you. It's now online! Click one of the links below to have some fun:

Next, we have the Origami Fortune Teller. I don't know about you guys but these were all the rage when I was in elementary and middle school. We would spend hours folding paper and making it look attractive. Then, we could entertain each other with bizarre fortunes for a while. Grab your paper and get started making yours!
Directions for making one from paper (with pictures!):
Online (not quite as much fun because you don't get to make the fortunes):

There's two of my favorites from when I was younger. What are some of your favorite games from when you were younger? I'm looking for the games that you could make on your own with just some paper and a pencil.
