Stay Alive by Milton Bradley

A few weeks ago, I tossed out a few Vincent Price commercials. I couldn’t get this one to embed at that time, but I found a different version of it.

Besides the Vincent Price Stay Alive commercial, there was also this one:

I remember playing this game as a very young kid. It seems to have lots of potential, but for some reason it wasn’t as fun as it looked on these commercials. There wasn’t the tension or the strategy that I had expected. Maybe that’s because we didn’t take turns as we were supposed to and just pulled tabs as fast as we could, turning the game into a short-lived free for all. Or maybe it’s because we weren’t playing with Vincent Price.
