660 viewsYears ago, when Bob would pitch to a commercial from the turntable, he'd position himself in front of the turntable itself and we'd see the game being spun away. The clock in the "Clock Game" would reset as it spun around. Here's Janice and the "Grocery Game" going bye-bye in the background.

647 viewsBefore the greens and the metallics took hold, and well before the game was christened, the Bonus Game was a melange of tans and oranges with a black border. And it was played about every three days. The game is played less frequently now, but the board retains its now-classic look.
