Do you have ESP? (the Board Game)

Extra sensory perception or ESP is the ability to send or receive information using only your mind. The Amazing Kreskin was one of a few famous psychics supposedly blessed with this skill. Kreskin was a popular talk show guest appearing on the Merv Griffin Show, Johnny Carson and many more.

Here is a short clip of Kreskin on the David Letterman Show.

Milton Bradley cashed in on his popularity with the Kreskin’s ESP board game from 1966. I found this one at a flea market a couple of weeks ago. It lets you and your friends test your psychic abilities. Also like a Ouija board, you can let the magic pendulum answer questions and spell out words. If the power goes out this weekend during the expected ice storm, I will have plenty of time to brush up on my psychic powers.

I love retro toys, television, movies and just about anything from the 70s and 80s.I frequent flea markets, thrift shops, garage sales and auctions hoping to nab my next pop culture trophy.
