Man did we have fun with this game, take your shoes off and SPIN THAT SPINNER.It got to the point where we would take our socks off for better traction(cheaters).If memory serves me correctly I think the original version was thicker than the versions out today.I believe they had a cotton pad between the two plastic sheets.I recently purchased a 1966 original at a Goodwill for a $1.00, box is a little messed up, but pad and spinner are perfect.They should make a GEEZER version with colored chairs, so us older folks can play.Were not quite as limber as we used to be.

I remember playing Twister with all of my friends. We thought it was great that we 'had' to take our shoes off..and play in sock feet..then we'd all wind up falling in a great big pile, and laughing so hard.
what great childhood memories.

Hi: Ran across your website while surfing. My memories of Twister are quite personal . Chuck Foley and I created this game while working for the Reynolds Guyer agency in St.Paul,MN back in the sixties . A book out by Tim Walsh entitled "Timeless Toys" about classic toys of the last century has some really neat info including Twister. I never benefited finacially as I was just an employee even though it sold millions. If anyone is interested look my name up on the internet, Neil W. Rabens

My cousin had Animal Twister, which was just like Twister but had pictures of animals instead of colors, it was really cool. I have never seen this anywhere else, she got it the 70's.

I mostly remember this game as an "icebreaker" at the parties of my older teenage sister and her friends. LOL.
Now, my kids love it and we usually pull it out at family parties.

There's something to be said about having a large family. For me it was just me and one younger brother. The floor space was small so it kinda curled up the wall. One of us would spin and try to get the other tangled up. LAME HUH?! But it was fun any way.
Now I am a music teacher at an elementary school and I printed music notes on the mat. So the new way to play is: caller "right hand green whole note" what fun.
