There was a timer and you had to put these onk shaped pegs into theholes on the board. The trick had to insert your hand in between twocobra heads. If you stuck a peg in an activated hole, it would make a loudnoise and the two heads would pop up and "bite" your wrist.

I loved this game but eventually lost it somewhere in my journey through life. Being older I would love to own it once again. the discription forgets to mention that a skull pops out of the coffin shaped bored as soon as the snakes wrap around your wrist. If anybody has any info on this game please comment. even if you can just find a picture that would be great.

OMG I LOVED this game! I've just spent the last hour trying to find the name of it on google. It TOTALLY scared the absolute crap outta me! And my poor cats who I used to put sitting beside it when the skeleton popped out! My heart would be racing whenever I played, especially putting my hand through the cobras, I'd be nearly crying having to do that! But I loved it all the same. God bless the 80's!!!

Holy cow, this was like, the best game! I LOVED playing this with my dad. It scared me every time the cobras caught your wrist but it was sure fun!

I still have this game, though I lost some of the pegs over the years.

I had it and remember the commercial for it. Can't find the commercial on youtube anywhere. Even cooler, I have the JAWS game from 1976 (not the re-issues from Marx or Pressman, but the original), box, instructions and all!

I remember this Great Game. Had it when I was a child. Sadly it got lost over the years. We were talking about old vintage board games we used to play over a family meal and I quickly remembered Curse of the Cobra. Would Love to find it again.

I have been looking for this for years! I've tried explaining this game to countless people and nobody knows what I'm talking about. Was beginning to think I imagined it, or was the only 80's child to have one. Thank you! Now to stalk ebay :-)
