Here’s a great game from the past of many of us: Cootie.

This game is about as simple as they come, but it’s the favorite of my childhood.  Basically you have a plastic bug that disassembles into pieces.  You place those pieces on the board (seen in the picture).  Everyone takes turns rolling the die.  When you roll the die, you match the result with the board, and then you take a piece of the cootie from that row of the board and add it to your growing Cootie.  The first to fully assemble their cootie wins.  Completely random, but rather fun for a young person since you get to play with your plastic cootie while the other people are rolling.

Once Tron is a little older I’ll have to get a cootie set so we can play.
