Most adults remember being kids in school watching the clock to see how much longer before they can go outside to play tag. In case you need a reminder, tag was a simple, yet popular, game in which two or more players chase another player in an attempt to "tag," or touch them. Technically, it was a schoolyard staple—or WAS a school stable. Outdoor games aren't played as much as they used to be—the internet has changed the future generations a lot and now kids are perfectly content staying inside!

Do you remember playing hopscotch, freeze tag and hide and seek? Were you a regular Red Robin champ? Did you go all out and really kick butt in dodgeball? Was kickball your jam? Did you play jacks? Were you master of the spinning top! Whatever your schoolyard game was, this is the quiz for you! Relive your youth by identifying your favorite games. Are you still the schoolyard champ?
