This was a strange card game from 1971, which I did not really enjoy playing, it has cards of four colours Red, Green, Yellow and Blue which had a number on it from 1 to 9 and some are action cards too.

Each player gets seven cards and the game continues. It is probably a bit complicated to write down the rules, but this game was played in my school every dinner break, as said I tried it but it just bored me totally. I preferred getting a proper set of cards, and not be limited to one game every dinner break, plus snap was not so complicated.

It got worse too, as the manufacturers must have known it was boring as they started to have theme sets like Barbie, Batman , Coca Cola and the Muppets too.

Even Star Trek was included, and they related it to the Tribbles episode with a Tribble card and a Beam me up Scotty card. As I said, I never got the point of UNO.

70s Toys & Games

Remember the old retro toys you used to play with? Did you bounce about on spacehoppers, play pong or ride around on your cool Chopper? Can you recall the heroes Twirling Tim and Hurricane Hank, and who they used to do battle with in the arena? Did you used to come home from school with bruised knuckles from trying to beat 100 clacks on your Klackers? Or was you the studious type carefully making lovely patterns with your Spirograph which, no matter how careful you were, always seemed to cut through the paper turning your masterpiece into a mess.
