Board Game? What is that!!

Recently my neighbor was cleaning out a closet; she came across the board game “Twister”!

You know the big mat with the big circles of different colors, right foot blue, and left hand yellow!  Where you end up getting all twisted up with other players.

The game was still wrapped in plastic and she thought it would be a nice gift for the small children who lived next door.

She called the children over to the fence; (they are 6 and 4 years of age.)

“I have a game for you”!  She said with excitement in her voice.

“Oh what is it”?  They asked excitedly.

“It’s twister”!

“Is that a game we play on the TV”?


“Is it a game we play on the computer”?


Is it for my “Nintendo DS”!

No, it’s a board game.” My neighbor now sounding confused.

“What’s that”?   The kids asked beginning to lose interest in this whole conversation.

The point of this little story:

Twister became successful when Eva Gabor played it with Johnny Carson in the Johnny Carson Show in 1966.

The game went wild; played everywhere from Universities, schools, and homes and went global.  People aged 3 to 100 got the “bug”

Parents get your children off the computer and electronic games and play a board game.  Twister can still be purchased today! And it is a family game where everybody can play!! It is for all generations!

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
