Do pre-pubescent kids still play Kiss-chase? Rules of play being variant on Tag: that your average 10 year old boy pursues similar afed girl and if caught she submits to a kiss [at that age this usually results in "yeuch"].

I also know a friend of a friend who used to build Santa traps, complete with stakes - not to mention the home-made rockets...

Ahhh...but at age 8, wasn't it the girls chasing the boys ?
I seem to remember the more anal version of this being dogsmuck chase. Small, grubby urchin scrapes up tiny amount of dogsmuck on a stick and chases girls, trying to touch their dresses with it. I never did understand what the significance was...

Me and my friends played kisschase when we were 5 but it seemed to be about 5 girls to one boy. Ahhhh long lost innocence!

They never used to let me play. Boo-hoo. Oh, I'm all depressed now.

I did play a version of the dogsmuck game, but we used human faeces and there weren't any girls. There were just two of us, in fact, but then the dog died. Ah, long lost innocence...
