Baby Boomer Alert: Happy Birthday to “Twister!”
The party interactive game "Twister" was born on this day in 1966.
The game is simplistic to the utmost. Just a big old plastic sheet with colored dots on it. Put your hand here, put your foot here. You get it. But wait...lets have two people play it at once! Aha..that is where the game gets interesting.
"Twister" was the first game to use human bodies as game pieces. Millions of game sets have been sold in the last fifty years making it one of Milton Bradley's greatest successes.
