    I had very violent friends, so here was a few of mine:

    Extreme manhunt: We split ourselves into two teams. One team would come up with a word, give each person a letter, and then go hide. The other team would hunt members of the other team down; then beat the crap out of anyone they found until they gave up their letter. Once the team figured out the word, the roles were switched until we all decided we were good and bloody enough for one night. And if you gave up your letter too quickly, you were subject to getting jumped by your own team.

    Blind Bicycle Racing: This was one of our favorites. There was this huge bumpy hill we'd race down after putting blindfolds on each other. I had the largest bike, and it was the only bike with no brakes. We stopped playing this game eventually because we kept running over each other, and people were getting seriously injured.

    Gang-Jump: When we walked around the suburbs, if saw a car coming, someone would yell, "Car!" Someone would then lay on the ground, and the rest of us would pretend to be kicking the person on the ground to death. When the person got out of their car, we'd all go running off. If we had our bikes with us, we'd throw the bikes into the road and lay down as if we'd gotten into a crash.

    No-Name Death-wish: One of my friends had a dad with a crossbow. He'd nick it, and we'd all gather in someone's yard. He'd aim the crossbow "straight" up and shoot. The first person to move lost and got beaten. We stopped this game when one of the kids got an arrow through his leg.

    Now, let me hear some others.

    We used to take short cuts through this weird old house when we were kids. I found out later that there was a convicted child molester living there.

    @ Tre. That's... That's really kind of scary, actually. O.o Did y'all go through the actual house or through the yard?

    @ VGLythia
    The house was surrounded by bushes and had a big grassy garden that led into some trees. If you climbed down the garden you would come into a clearing that we made a 'camp ' out of. We used go around through the back garden and sometimes we'd get brave and snoop around the shed and peer through the curtains. There was always newspaper sellotaped to the inside of the window though, making it hard to see through. I guess we thought for the most part that it was abandoned because it was so unkept. Once or twice I saw the curtains twitch, but convinced myself that it was my imagination. When I found out who lived there I felt a bit weird, thinking of who lived there and what had the potential to happen. I always stare at it when I pass it now. To this day I've still never seen anyone come or go, but it looks even wilder and scarier after all these years.

    Oh gosh, I ranted ha ha. Sorry xD

    "Spirit of the Coin". It's a game where you "try" to contact spirits from the other world. Yeah... sounds a bit creepy, especially since I was in grade two when we played it...

    Oh um..My brother and I used to get weird looking spiders (now that I think about it they were probably poisonous...) and put them in his bug trap and just...poke it.

    We were horrible little monsters.

    We used to get together, get two huge stick candles, and pour hot wax on eachother til someone started crying.
    Then there was the knife game. It was basically truth or dare, but if you chickened out on a dare you got a stake knife thrown at you.

    We used to play a game called Anywhere Surfboard, which basically involved stealing a surfboard from my dad's garage and taking it anywhere- to a deadly hill, to the top of the stairs, or to a mountain of rocks on a building site, piling as many kids on as would fit on the board and then surfing down whatever it was.

    We also used to play a similar game, but by trying to cram as many kids as possible into a wheelie bin.

    There's this one game that was basically target shooting that I stopped playing. Recently. What happened was someone would grab a bow and arrow and we'd tie a string to it. Someone would shoot it towards a tree or something far away and we'd basically see who could stay in the path of the arrow without getting shot for the longest. The two losing people get punished by the winners punishment of choice ranging from spending the night in a local cave or water torture.

    Not sure if you could call this a game, but it brought me joy.

    I'd use my friend Jeff for target practice and shoot him with a BB gun. Hell, I did this two months ago. Cool

    Me and my sister used to ride the toybox lid down the stairs, but that was about it.

    As a kid, I was terrified of being hurt. XD

    Nowadays it's just airsoft and paintball.

    Haha, no, you're not being an ass. Sadly, it didn't work. But our school apparently used to be a Spanish cemetery, and even the teachers shared some ghost stories to us.
    I guess it didn't work because we were doing it wrong, and it was noon, and there was loud music on.

    Most of what I did was by myself. I like to ride an old wagon down hills. I also crashed my snowmobile a couple times by jumping over mysterious ditches. I feel lame because that's about as dangerous as it got.

    The most dangerous game we ever played was basically just a kind of extreme sledging. I played this with a few friends about 3 years ago, since we have a big meadow with a massive hill right next to our houses. The 'extreme' part comes in when you realise that the hill was at an angle that was almost a straight line, and all the grass had eroded away so there was only icy hard dirt left. We used body boards (they are amazing for sledging on) and we used to use the snow at the bottom of the hill to build huge ramps that made the body boards go flying into the air. We thought it'd be cool and we'd fly on our body boards then land in a pile of snow, but what really happened was more like we fell off the board as soon as we flew off the ramp and ended up nearly breaking bones when we landed in the few patches of ground with no snow.

    It was dangerous enough going down normally, but a few of my other friends tried it going face first on their body boards, or backwards. I was having nothing to do with that.

    Well being me I still play stupid and dangerous games..... But now what yall think.
    Me and my friends took spin the bottle to the next level. It was sort of a mix between 7minuets in heaven and spin the bottle. We would spin it and whoever it landed we would have to kiss for at leas five seconds then it was up to the group if we were sent to the closet.... Ofc they sent me and my best friend Kaitlin to to he dirty work. Not knowing she had a hidden kink for that stuff. Within seconds of the door being locked she had me pinned.... So yeah
