Battling Tops

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

The idea behind Battling Tops was that you chose the top part, then chose the spinning part and wound the string around the base. Then you placed it in a notch in the board and pulled real hard (not hard enough to break the string though) and watched it "battle" everybody else's top. Last one spinning won.
