Batteries Not Include Or Needed. Pocket Games and Activities

I was reading through The Dangerous Book for Boys when a section on coin football triggered memories of killing time playing this distraction as a kid. The cool part about the game was that all you needed was 3 coins (quarters, if I recall) and a flat surface.

This got me thinking. Surely there must be a whole bunch of games and activities you can do using little more than the the contents of your pockets? And there definitely are. For starters, there's a whole bunch of well known pencil and paper games. But with a bit of creativity, there are even more things you can do.

I ran a bunch of Google searches and put together a list here. I hope to add to it as I can think of more activities.

Here's a preview of the list:

So, next time you're stuck in in an especially tight spot, hopefully one of these ideas will help get you out.

Have any activites/games you'd add to the list?
