What did you used to call the game of "knock and run"?

(as in, knocking on someone’s door and running away)

We used to call it Knock Down Ginger.

My Canadian friend called it Nicky Nicky Nine Door :smiley:

You?

Occasionally knock and run

Hudson Heffer tried to do a knock and run, tripped, faceplanted on their path and the man who opened the door had to help him clean his bloodied face, gave him a bag of frozen peas, phoned his mum to pick him up and made him a cocoa.

the better game was chap door excuse, where you had to wait for them to answer and come up with a reason why you were knocking their door

We used to do a superb equivalent to this where you could get a mate to knock round for another mate (mate 1 needs to not know where mate 2 lives for this to work) and then they’d just be standing there like a gormless idiot when the door was answered and they’d be like “Is Bazza in?” and the person would be like “Who is Bazza!?”

Great stuff
