How's no one commented on the nefarious Twister? This game was the spin the bottle of our younger years...

I have the original one too, Lisa, and it's still in great condition! I don't play with it anymore, but would very much like too again!

I enjoy colors to such an extent that I bought this game four times in the same week. It brings tears to my eyes every time i see the color red, yellow, green, and blue. Jenkins, out.

I've recently played with my niece and nephew and nearly broke an arm and pulled several muscles...and I'm in fairly decent shape! The inflatable one looks cool. Anyone know where you can buy one of those?

I never had one, but a Latino fam. that lived across the st. did. One a rainy day we all went over with a few other kids. We played in the den while their father slept on a couch nearby. All I remember is that the bro got mad at his sis and rolled her up in the thing and wouldn't let her out. The commotion got so loud it woke the dad, even though he spoke Eng. when he was mad it was in Span. and we all knew he meant business. We all had to go home and we never played it again. Ah, the memories.

I have fond memories of all the older people in my family playing this in the living room or out on the front lawn. Man, most of those people have gone home now to be with the Lord. I guess thats why we browse through memories every once in awhile...hmmmmm....

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault: The very first TV commercial for the Twister Game. This aired on a rerun of "Top Cat" over NBC (5/21/66). For awhile, it appeared that this Milton Bradley classic would face a short leash. Many conservatives from the deep-south "Bible Belt" expressed outrage, afraid that playing Twister would lead to sexual deviancy among teenagers. While there were toy-store boycotts and lost TV ad revenue, the overall flak created was minimal, and Twister became quite a popular game when 1967 began.

Found Twister in the 1966 Sears Wish Book. It was little over $4 with tax. Also saw that today's Hasbro version selling for $16, just for the same vinyl mat and spinner. There are also several variants of the game available.
