Closet treasures

I was cleaning out one of my closets last weekend and stumbled across a game that I hadn’t seen in ages. 

 

Tomy Pocket Game "Shootin' Gallery"

Tomy Pocket Game "Shootin' Gallery"

Looking at the back of the game, I see that it is dated 1976.  It’s hard to believe that this old Tomy Pocket Game is that old, as well as still functional.  The plastic casing is a bit scratched and cloudy, and the paper background is slightly warped, but other than that it is in good working order.

For those of you who are old enough to remember, can you believe games like this one would fascinate us for hours?  I guess it was our version of the Nintendo Wii or Xbox 360, except that it was portable and didn’t require batteries.

Maybe you should search your closets and see what treasures you might find.
