Game On...

During the summers, my friends and I spent a vast majority of our time as kids making up games outside.  Ignoring the directions, we take the pieces of a regular game like kick ball or tennis and add our own rules. Croquet was not about getting the ball through the wickets, but instead a highly intricate obstacle course. Tennis became a race around the yard while bouncing the ball on your racquet.

With Labor Day fast approaching, I can't wait to get my hands on some brightly colored games and make up my own version of "Calvinball"...
