I have a great many memories playing games while growing up in Glasgow from the early 60s, including:
> keepie uppie headers with a big old leather football.
> kerby, possibly one of the most under-rated street ball game ever, requiring, skill, dexterity, patience and a keen eye for approaching motor vechiles.
> hula hoop, which would now come in handy for getting rid of the dreaded, but omnipresent, beer belly.
> rounders in the street, or, if we were good and didn'y have to go for the cross-country run, in the school playground.
> street tennis, whenever there was a hint of Wimbledon in the air - not nets required of course, just a chalk mark!
> the bouncy rubber ball game which started ith the song "Over the mountain and under the sea, that's where my true love is waiting for me..."
> chap-door-run-away, aka the chicken run, where you would go to the tenement landing and rattle the letterbox an if you weren't fast enough you would get caught and cuffed round the ear by people reacting to the chapping-and-running from the other landings.
> tigg, where whoever was touched was 'het' and would involve large numbers of kids running in any place the game took you - back closes, tenement landing, streets, etc. - and the object of the game was to touch someone shout "yer het" and run away then that unfortunate outcast would try and catch someone else and pass the het on - could often last for hours.
> hide-and-seek (with and without the thumbs up 'keyses' get out) hardly needs any explaining as it is a rite of passage for all Glasgow kids, there are numerous versions of the simple concept of catching those in hiding, including "two man hunt" and "kick the can".
A gem everyone of them and not a penny spent!!!
