Jamaican Games - The Good Ole' Stuff
Jamaican Ring Games
I was reading a little book called Jamaican Games & Riddles that brought back some really wonderful memories.
It reminded me of some of our most fun games here in Jamaica; the stuff we did when there were no DVDs, cellphones, iphones, ipads, computers, tablets, cable TV, and in some cases, no TV at all!
And they worked well!
In fact many of us think that these made us more social than we are today.
Here is a list of a few of them. Check them out.
