In the castle in the ’70s we were a large group of children. On a daily basis we played “makria gomara”, “sklavakia”, “kryftoteneke” and “mouka”, that is, we set up in a matchbox, fifties or pennies and we had to hit the box with a washer so that the money was left down, away from the box, so throwing a second time to go close to the money and with the desire to touch them to get them. Remarkable toy was also the “psito” (roast), ie a child sitting on a stone. Another one was guarding the first so as not to “eat” it, that is, not to hit it with a belt of about 2 meters. If someone hit it then the guard shouted “roasted”!
