Ah, the memories…
So who remembers any of these:
Merlin! There were several games on this one and I remember the sounds and red lights. High tech at its best!
I think everyone had Simon – it’s a classic memory game. Loved it.
This was a kids’ game to help you learn math – I really liked the Little Professor. Doesn’t he look smart?
Speak n Spell – same concept but helped you learn how to spell.
Fabulous Fred – another one with various games including memory and others I can’t even remember. I remember liking the colors, especially that middle pink button and the light turquoise underneath it.
Ok - I don’t know about the rest of you, but this one always scared the crap out of me. The point was to press down n the middle board, set the timer, and you had to fit in all those yellow pieces before time ran out or else the board would pop up and the pieces you did manage to place flew everywhere. Stress much?
And to make matters worse, they came out with Superfection. Same deal, but now you had to combine 2 pieces into a square, then place the square on the board. Time ran out and BOOM, pieces everywhere.
The part I remember most about this one was the whining noise. My brother Mark and I would play 2-player mode really early in the morning and the rest of the family would get annoyed. The whining noise (weee weee weee weee) still cracks me up. Loved this game.
OMG Intellivision (this is the II edition)! Classic video game console.
My ultimate fave game was Lock N Chase (kind of like PacMan):
My sister was the queen of Astrosmash. To this day, we swear that her OCD gave her an unfair advantage:
Burger Time – goal: Make burgers. Corny but still fun! Notice the fried egg dude and evil hot dogs out to get the chef!
This was boxing in the 80s. Yes…yes it was.
And this was baseball. LOL You needed lightning reflexes to switch players to catch the ball…
Golf. Check out the white blob (aka the golf ball). Awesome.
Aaaah Good times.
