When I was young, a game could capture my peer groups’ attention and be all consuming. Then as quickly as it grabbed us, it would get discarded. Such was the fate of Block the Clock, the Family Action Game. It is a cool game, as you will see from the commercial, you need to shuffle a movable board to keep the moving clock going. Knock it over and you are out.
We played this game for a solid month or so and even had small tournaments to see who was the best, but at the end of the month, something new came along, I cannot remember what and we moved onto that. I wish I still owned the game, I would like to give it a spin. Maybe get a tourney going. You know this concept would probably work well as a video game as well.
