Hi.
I used to love getting out for recess. I couldn't eat fast enough. First one to get one of the kickballs that were thrown into the yard got to be a captain and choose the players. Game play was serious, and ultimately very fun!

After that it was back to class. Everyone always asked me to play my watch. Yea a few have pacman, qbert, or frogger watches but mine had a joystick....oooh. I really enjoyed the game watch but maybe my friends enjoyed it more.

I currently have 3, 2 boxed, 1 is brand spanking new. I also have 2 game time watches.

...just need a Sports Time and I'll be all set.

Wow... _Totally_ remember that. Haven't thought about kickball in YEARS...

My friend had a Game-Time. I remember thinking it was so cool because it could play more than one game! We'd always be taking turns playing it... Had no idea (back then) that it was related to the Vectrex (something I never had as a kid, but desperately wanted)... I didn't even know there were two other *-Time watches... Rolling Eyes

Man that was the good old days. I wish they let kids now a days have that much fun.

Now knowing more about the watches I sure wish I had a Game Time instead. The game play on it is even fun now (at least for toilet time...lol)

-Dodge ball!
-Space Invaders!
-Pong!

-...can't think of the other of the top of my head.
