I personally loved this game called "tumbang preso". It used to be a popular game here in the Philippines where there as an it who watches after a tin can placed inside a circle. The other players of the game will try to hit the can at a certain distance with their slippers. If the can is hit, the it has to go after the can and make sure to put it back upright inside the circle. When the can is not inside the circle, anyone can run around and retrieve their slippers without fear of being tagged by the it. However, if one tries to hit the can but fails, s/he has to wait for someone to hit the can before retrieving his/her slippers and going back to the base. If you're a really fast runner though, you can try and retrieve your slippers when the it is a bit distracted with other things.
There were so many that it's a hard choice. I loved playing "tag", because I liked running. Same with "hide and seek".
I really loved playing "Hide and Seek" or "Red Rover" with my friends. We also made our own variations of "tag" like "TV Tag," where there was no base, and in order to be safe, runners would have to crouch while saying the name of a tv show. We could only be down for ten seconds, and the one who was "it" could not stand over someone while they were crouched. Also, a show could not be repeated by the same peson; if they were to repeat a show, they were automatically "it."
I played endless hours of "Don't Touch the Ground." It can be played anywhere and requires absolutely nothing. The point is to get from one point to another without touching the ground. It boosts creativity and gets kids out there and active.
It's a fun game to play in the backyard, a park, or on a camping trip. In recent times, Parkour has taken over an the urban version of the game. I even played it indoors on the furniture, much to my mother's dismay.
