My favorite game by far was Dark Tower .....
Quoted from EdisonArcade:
I think I'm probably even worse, because I knew they got their facts wrong in that movie when they say Oscar Goldman is the rarest/most sought after.
I had this cool Oscar Goldman briefcase. If you didn't open it up this special secret way, it would "self destruct".
Those Gayla kites were the bomb! I used to fly them so high you could barely see them. It would suck when it would suddenly take a nosedive and you would have to walk a mile to find where it landed.
Does anyone remember these little Wee Gee squirt guns? They didn't hold a lot of water, but they shot very far and accurate little blasts ...
I still have my Domino Rally sets from the 80's, and my kids will break them out every once in a while ...
Quoted from swampfire:
Always my favorite coed activity, but the grass burns could be painful.
I bought a Slip 'n Slide for my kids a few years ago. It was only setup in our backyard for a few hours, and it completely killed all the grass beneath it. It took months before that patch of grass started looking somewhat green again.
I don't recall ever meeting someone who actually owned one of these, but that chilling commercial jingle is permanently seared into my brain ...
Quoted from pinwiztom:
Most of you probably remember Stratego and Battleship and Risk,
but does anyone remember Combat!
I didn't watch Combat! back in the day (I wasn't even born yet), but I've developed a love for it in re-reuns. It's really a shame what happened to Morrow while filming Twilight Zone: The Movie.
