That is a very cool story and a very cool game… We city kids are some inventive mothers….
All my friends would stand in a line facing me. They would each choose a brand of cigarettes to be and discuss it among themselves making sure I didn’t hear. I would then start yelling out brands and who ever was that brand would take off running like a bat out of hell. I would have to chase them around a house and if I didn’t catch them by the time they got back into line I was still it. If I caught them they’d now be the person yelling out brands. We’d change the game frequently using colors or soda brands instead of cigarettes. Therefore changing the name to “colors” or “sodas”. Hope you enjoyed my story, this is truly one of my fondest childhood memories.
