10 Nostalgia Games That 90’s Kid In Malaysia Played Before

1. Congkak

Congkak is not a game that many would bring to school but it can still be borrowed from the library and played there. Librarians in particular would know this game well as it is one of the games in the library’s inventory.

2. Hopscotch

Also known as ketinting, we’d often draw our own boxes on the ground, using chalk. As chalkboards were, and still is used, in primary schools, chalks were in abundance and they were accessible to students too. This makes it easy to draw ketinting templates on school grounds and clean it up with a wet cloth after one is done.

3. Snakes & Ladders

Just about every kid back in the 90s owned a Snakes and Ladders board game of some sort. It was a straight forward game involving just a dice and more than 2 players can play during each round. It’s also interesting because no matter how close one is to winning, they might encounter a snake that’ll send them tumbling right back to the start of the game.

4. Pop Pop

Pop Pop is a messy game that is commonly played during the festive season. It’s loud and mimics the sound of firecrackers. Kids would sometimes use these Pop Pop crackers to scare one another as it makes a loud sound and produces a momentary spark.

5. Tamagotchi

These were most kids’ very first gadget and they come in a variety of colors. The animation on the Tamagotchis of the past used to be in black and white but these days, they even come in colors. If you owned a Tamagotchi back then, you somehow earned bragging rights too because not everybody had one in their possession.

6. Game Boy

Like having our first phone, the Gameboy was a novelty gadget that many received as a gift upon scoring straight As for our UPSR exams. The best part is, you can always purchase new cartridges (after saving up lots of pocket money) to unlock a whole new world of games.

“Lat tali lat tali tam plom”. Does that phrase bring back fond memories of your childhood? One of the reasons why this game was so popular was the fact that you don’t need any boards, cards, or marbles in order to play it.
