1966 Milton Bradley “Memory” Game. The game had (I think) 36 pairs of picture cards and was played by putting all the cards face down and trying to pick a matching pair one turn at a time.
Being from 1966, it was *ahem* WELL before my time, but we picked this up at a yard sale and something about the wacky retro graphics stuck with me all these years. It’s hard to find good images of the cards themselves, but do an image search and you should be able to come up with a few. I bought the game on Ebay a few years back, but it’s still in my parent’s attic. Once I get a chance, I think I’ll do a whole set of nails based on the cards or at least take a decent picture to show all the graphics.
I’ve also seen a few for sale on Etsy, if anyone is interested to see what it looks like.
Sorry that the contest was a bit obscure- I’m planning to do more in the future, but I’ll make them a bit easier to figure out next time! Then again, anyone who has spent any time on my blog is aware that my art and inspirations for it can definitely veer off towards the strange side! :P
