# Describe a game you played in your childhood
You should say:
- What the game was
- When you played it
- Who you played it with
- How you felt about the game
I’m going to tell you about a hand game (a game like Mary Mack, etc.) I used to play with my sister and friends. It was called “Concentration 64”. At the time it seemed like so much fun, but now seems silly when I think about it. Anyway, let me tell you how we used to play it.
Started with a chant (song) claps that went “Concentration 64, no repeats or hesitations, I’ll start, you’ll finish, the category is ” then the person leading the game would choose a category, usually consisting of colors, animals, foods, etc. The two people had to name 64 things under that category. If one repeated or hesitated, they were automatically out. We started playing it in elementary school during recess, so between the ages of 6 and 10, so from the late 1990s to early 2000s. I remember my sister and I especially playing it on the way home from school since it was about a 45-minute drive there and back every day. It was an excellent way to pass the time!
I used to enjoy this game at that time. I was really into other hand games at the time as well, like Mary Mack, for example, so they were kind of my thing (something I liked) in general. I would usually beat (win) my sister and friends at it, so maybe that adds to why I used to like it so much. I thought it was an exciting way to generate competition, not to mention I found it thrilling to think of all the words I could think of under the chosen category. All in all, it was a fun way to pass the time and boost (improve) my confidence.
