    Do you remember?

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Wreybies, Feb 16, 2009.

    The idea of this game is just to post some blast from the bast to see if the next person remembers the item/event/phenomenon or not. No need to wait for the go-ahead from the prior poster, just say yes or no and then post your own thing. It can be a pic or it can be in the form of words as some things do not have pictorial representations.

    When the copies were really fresh they would be slightly damp to the touch and students got a kick off of thinking they could get high breathing in the fumes the paper gave off. :p

    I sure do. It was outclassed by the SNES I shared with my cousin, though.

    Edit: Darn it, too slow. No, I don't remember any special... clock radios?

    Do the posts have to be related, because mine is a show. It seems that no one else watched

    I loved Jewel Riders. My Fallon action figure lived in a half-finished Barbie Dream/crack House with the yellow Power Ranger and co.

    Oh yeah, the dreaded Lawn Darts! Unsafe? What could possibly go wromg?
    Alas, my chemistry set was also a victim of child product safety madness.

    This was a fun little game, and popular, believe it or not:

    I do, though I spent more time playing make-believe games than board games.

    I'm sure someone remembers

    Good to see you on this game, othman!

    And Spy Detector took some deduction and a brilliant design by the game designer (sorry - I don't know how to put pics in - I'm an old fart - fairly computer literate - but could not figure out how to put pics in).

    And if I understand this game - you are supposed to answer - and then offer up another . . . do you remember (w. or w/out picture) . . . thing.

    Yes, correct. The item presented may be visual or verbal. This is a writing site after all...

    Do you remember your first banana seat?

    I don't believe I've ever seen that one.

    Here's a blast from the past. Yep, that guy standing to the right of Robert Culp is none other than Bill Cosby, in this spy series by Sheldon Leonard.
