According to wikipedia, that’s what Milton Bradley’s competitors referred to Twister as when it was first released in 1966. As enticing as that sounds, it’s not the reason I purchased this early Australian version of the game a few weekends ago.
It was the cover art! How great is it? I suspected it may of dated from the 1960’s, and after a quick look inside my suspicions were confirmed – so purchased it I did.
Once home, I pulled the board game apart, and was pleasantly surprised with it’s condition, which included the original instructions.
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever played Twister before, so perhaps over the Christmas break and before I add it to the online store I might just to see what all the fuss is about!
Lucky enough to come across a great matching set of Parker Nordic bedsides.
Condition was pretty good, however the leg on one had a previous repair which wasn’t quite up to standard, there was also a nasty gouge to the top edge and a small chip to the veneer on one drawer front.
With all repairs carried out, the original finish was given a light go over with some super fine steel wool, and then 2 coats of an oil/mineral turpentine mixture was applied.
Very happy with the end results! The bedsides will be available in the online shop with the matching bed head very soon.
