Did anyone ever actually play the game or did we all just set up the plastic-and-rubber-band-Rube Goldberg machine and launch it? It worked maybe 25% of the time; usually it would jam up.
Mousetrap, a board game with plastic parts, which my brother and I were given in 1966, I'm guessing.
I'd have included the arcade had I been thinking. That might have been number 1 for me. They were always in the mall, usually by the food court. Spend 2 bucks in quarters, maybe last for an hour. I think they were still doing well during the nintendo/super nintendo era but playstation ruined them.

The Arcade: This is where you went with your allowance. Pac Man, Defender, Frogger, Pole Position, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Asteroids... all the golden age arcade games were there. I loved video games, and think things were different when you had to pay a quarter every time you wanted to play.
I don't "remember" that exactly, too young to care about politics, but this was true. However, for the people who are complaining about partisanship today, I would note that eras of bipartisanship like that are quite rare in our history: maybe 1815 to 1830 or so and then again from 1945 to 1980. Rabid partisanship usually holds sway.

My dad was running seriously in the late 80s. He told me there was one local race where 5 women broke 18 minutes for a 5K. No money on the line, just a normal race. You can't find a 5K today with 5 men breaking 18 minutes.
