Fathers do it today too. But since life has become busy, it is comparatively less observed.

Brick Games. Every game looked almost same, yet we had a favorite game among them.

11) Badshah ka wazeer kon?

Another multiplayer game we all enjoyed. A game of guess where you gotta guess who is Sipahi and who is Chor.

12) Bell Baja k Bhaagna

Well, what is life if you didn't do this. lol. This was the most fun thing 90s kid did in their kidhoods.

13) Defining our own rules of Cricket

Jo ball door phenkyga wohi leke ayega. Jiska bat uski pehli bari. Remember all those rules that made us dictator of cricket in own streets.
