In 1978 Parker Brothers brought to live something that was brought to this world by NASA, employee Bob Doyle, his wife Holly and brother-in-law, Wendl Thomas. No, this wasn’t brought from space or anything like that but it was invented, yes invented. It played games.
What games did it have
- Tic Tac Toe
- Music Machine
- Black Jack 13
- Magic Square
This became a popular game in the 1980s and that is when I fell in love with this thing.
Why did I like it
This thing was a great thing to play with and I learned a lot from this game. I learned how to play blackjack, tic tac toe. This was before Simon says and that was also a fun game. I would run out the batteries faster than I can remember.
Later on, I would pretend it was a phone, I know I was a total geek. But that was what I was all about. I wish I could have found it at my parents’ house but I am afraid one of my sisters just tossed it out.
