Throwback Thursday : a childhood game


I was at an antique mall recently and I came across these jumbo jacks. It brought back such a rush of memories. I can remember playing with these all through my childhood. I remember sitting on the ground at the school yard heedless of my mother’s efforts to keep my school uniform crisp and crease free, as I played with like minded girls. Thanks to this game, I’d come home with dirt and grime under my nails but exhilarated with the way I played and levels I reached with jacks. In this day and age of iPads and iPods, wifi and wii, it’s nice to see that games like this are still around, a throwback to simpler days and simpler pleasures.
