Many of the games played by the pioneer children still last up to date. The game materials included ropes, scraps, pieces of wood and any other locally obtainable stuff. These games include leapfrog, hide and seek cards, marbles, checkers, shadow tag, rolling the hoop, Jack straws, ducks fly, poor doggie, charades, spinning tops, among others. The pioneers, as the name suggests, were the first people to inhabit the frontiers of North America. A good number of them were farmers; others were blacksmiths, traders and professionals.
