Board games BOARD GAMES


Whatchamacallit ('what you may call it') was issued in 1974. It had a groovy board with different subjects, such as pop groups and countries of the world on it. You had to take it in turns to spin a pointer round, which would stop on a letter. You then had to throw a little ball into a square box and shout out your answer - a word relating to the selected category and beginning with the letter landed on - if you got your ball into the hole. We spent hours playing it, but the best bit was the colourful board - so 70s. We even got all Blue Peter and tried to make our own recently!
