The Circle Game – Childhood Games That Are Still Fun, Punch You I Will

July 10, 2018

Even though I like to write about intellectual subjects, this one will have nothing to do with that.

If you know or have played the game, you will get this whole post without reading it, but I’m posting for those who do get it.

I searched this on the Interweb and it stated that this started in the 1980’s.  Since I was in middle school way before this I’m calling BS and guessing that those before me have played it a long time.

So when I saw these examples, I knew what it was and it took me back to childhood, but I understood it without explanation.

The rules of the game are here:

Basically, you get someone to look at the circle below your waist against their will and you get to punch them.

It’s a game designed to be able to hit your friends and have them be ok with it.

The link provides other instructions like breaking the circle and not brushing it off, but they are just variations on being able to punch your friend.

We took it to all kinds of limits like drawing circles on the floor and other variations, but it’s simple.

I think the girl is giving a sign as to the play to make, but if not, it’s a really good Internet punch
