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".

Quoted from EdisonArcade:

Dug out an old comic. I ordered a bunch of this stuff. Used to run when the mailman came every day.

That reminds me of the old Johnson Smith catalogs. I would study those things for hours and then try to talk my parents into buying me crap like this ....

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.

Anyone remember Madcap Marathon?

I had that Realtone!

Me too. That exact same radio and case.

Quoted from hooch333:

My son and I have been treasure hunting in the crawl spaces of the house today......found the old toys of mine from 70's.

I forgot all about Blip. My brother and I used to love that game. It was kind of like a mechanical version of Pong.

I loved Frenzy so much as a kid that I bought one for my kids off eBay a few years ago ...
