My favorite!

This game is so fun it's addictive! Has anyone ever played this? I could play it for hours. Here's how it goes: You see, on both sides of the screen there are these little paddles that both corresponding players can either move up or down in order to hit a little ball back and forth to each other, like in Ping-Pong. If either player misses the ball, he or she loses the point to the other player. It goes on like this until one player has eleven points and wins the game. Classic! Get a buddy and try it. It's really fun.
