Girl Talk Date Line

I actually had to play this once! Not the best night of my male life, it is perhaps the most girl-centric game I could imagine.

The aim of the game is to match teenagers with suitable dates! That’s right, it’s a matchmaking game. A genius idea by some social science boffin. Really it’s a card game with a teenage girl twist, but what an attractive twist for a teenage girl.

I played it around my cousin’s house at a sleep over, and most of her friends were girls so I had to either play it or not join in. But you know what, when you started playing it it was actually a fun enough game (I just convinced myself I was playing a version of “Snap”.)

It was published in 1989 by “Golden”, and you can play with from two to four players only.

The gameplay included quite a lot of different things - including a talking speaker unit, 30 minute cassette “date tape” filled with teen conversations, a gameboard, 26 plastic teen cards, card holder, 4 game tokens, die, and instructions

There were a few other similar games in the brand – “Girl Talk: A Game of Truth or Dare” (which was the original game that was released before all the spin offs), then there was “Girl Talk Secret Diary”. Recently similar games have been released like Hannah Montana Girl, and others with celebrity tie-ins. Basically the game can be re-invented by almost any celebrity fad or phase…

These games also features bit of gameplay that had talking on the phone, dancing, having parties and sleepovers, and other "girl-ish" themes.
