    a weirdo game in the 50s and 60s - where if you saw a Lucky Strike cigarette package and stepped on it first - you were fair-game to give your companion a shot.

    Anybody remember???

    The Lucky Strike game was beforethe dangers ofsmoking were known.

    Always thought my parents were square because they were on e of the few in their social group that dindt smoke.

    Don't remember that one.
    Whenever we spotted a "four-hole Buick" first one to call it got to hit the others.
    Oh yea- you could hit twice- once for each side of the car LOL.
    And you had to say "no return" otherwise you'd get hit back.
    Also VW Beetles. Those were "slug Bugs".
