For the warmer months, we had a version of dodgeball we played that we called "murder ball".

We also played 'running bases' alot, it might be midwest thing. Basically it is two guys playing catch (each one on a base, read that as sidewalk square) with a base runner in betwwen them. The base runner has to get from one base to the other without being tagged out. Lot of knots on the backs of heads in that game.

On one of the other retro themes: I can't believe that the invisible Monster From The Id from Forbidden Planet didn't make the Top 100 Monsters of all Time. I had nightmares about that one for years!

We called that game 'pickle.' For us it was mostly a baseball drill or what you did after the ball game broke down. Also very interesting game when it got dark.
We also had leg wrestling: two kids on the monkey bars locking legs to pull the other down.
We had prisonball, which is like murder ball except you get thrown at from both sides. We used a volleyball court.
