Does anyone remember the game Movie Stars? I grew up on 28th between Irving and Judah and all the houses has outside staircases. We would sit on the bottom step and someone would give Movie Star initials and we would have to guess the name. If you guessed it right you moved up the stairs. I am not sure if this was a "real" game or something we made up to pass the time. How about Red Rover? Here's a trivia question (But I don't know the answer) Remember when we played hopskotch and we would have little things that we would throw to land on a square. I know there was a specific name for them but I can't for the life of me remember. I know that those little chains worked best. I can remember that rocks broke and pennies rolled - Can anyone help me on this one?
