Subject: 80' paper games

Written By: TC1970 on 08/10/05 at 6:15 am

The thread about the paper thingie got me thinking of other games we would play in the 80's. The guys always made the paper footballs. Any other games you all can think of??

we used to play this game called, "MASH" You would draw a square and put MASH across the top (that stood for mansion, apartment, shack, house)....then on each of the remaining sides we would put names of boys on one side, numbers (standing for how many children) on the bottom, and states (places to live) on the opposite side.  Then we would pick a number and close our eyes and point to the picture...wherever we landed, that is where we would start counting....until there was only one boy left, one number left, one state left, and one dwelling left...and that was supposed to tell us who we would marry, how many kids we were going to have, where we were going to live, and what kind of dwelling we would live in.

This would have been far preferrable to the wads of paper that were turned into spit balls and ended up all over the class room. Often targeted to us metal heads to get us to react and girls 'coz I guess they thought it was 'cute'.

Yeah, we played MASH all the time. Funny thing is, I was just thinking about it the other day - trying to remember what each letter meant in "MASH" - Mansion, Apartment, Shack or House, lol. I always seemed to get the shack with the hot looking guy...

I bought it about a year ago at a local video store on VHS. Way cheesy!!  I like it for the same reason you do..Adian Quinn! Oops.. you like Daryl Hanna.  ;)  Come on over and we can hang out watch this movie and chill out to metal music!. :P lol

Another paper game I just thought of..

You would write down a list of 5 things in  7 categories. Then have you friend fill  it in with her picks  and you would read it back to her. It went something like this..

Name 5 guys...
Name 5 women...
Name 5 rooms...
Name 5 male body parts...
Name 5 female body parts...
Name 5 rooms in a house...
Name 5 pieces of furniture...
The you ask your friend to give you 1 through 5 in any order and place the numbers beside each thing listed from top to bottom. Like this....

Name 5 guys

1 name here
4 name here
3 name here
2 name here
5 name here

and so on.... Then you match up numbers. Saying.. (name of guy) is having sex with (name of gal)... with his (name of body part)..in her (name of body part) ...in the (name of room)..on the..... you get the picture. I think. LOL

Yes it was silly but when you are 14 it is fun. Try it once now that you are older for laughs.

Sounds like a plan to me ;D I liked them both together but I actually liked Aidan Quinn and Sandra Bullock in Practical Magic better....that Midnight Margarita scene was awesome! OOPS...that's 90's...

Now back to the 80's :)

MetalManiac - Yeah, it seemed favorable in some areas - hot looking guy in a studio shack made out of scrap wood, softly lit candles as our lighting and nothing but love - lol

But yea, Quirk, that many kids was just NOT fair, lol
