The Game of Cootie

 

Did you ever play the Game of Cootie when you were growing up?

The Game of Cootie is a children’s roll-and-move tabletop game for two to four players.

The object of the game is to be the first to build a three-dimensional bug-like object called a “cootie” from a variety of plastic body parts.

I spent many hours playing it and loved every minute of it!
