    Re: Pocketeers

    Ah Rally.

    I loved that game when I was a kid (I seem to recall being told off for playing with it when I was at the school chess club when I should have been playing chess). I do wish that they would make them again - the electronic games that followed miss a certain something (certainly a great majority do).

    Mattel Masters of the Universe

    Compare Rally (and another favourite, Bombard) to the above - the electronic game loses hugely to the likes of Pocketeers.

        These were brilliant! I had the fruit machine one and the angling one. Great memories.

          omg did this have some sort of triangular push button thing at the side of the game that you pushed and the pictures spun round? Or am i confusing it with something else we had?

              At the top left side there was a triangular-type button you pushed to stop it spinning and underneath there was this button thing you pushed back and then released to make it spin. I clearly remember that I used to push the button back at the bottom, and then while still holding it back I would press the button in on the side which would then give you more control over the wheel as the spin would then all be controlled by the side button.

              If that makes sense, sorry if I didn't explain it very well. I played for hours with this thing, lol.

                it must be the same game I am thinking of that we had. I think i did the same thing with controlling the spin. Were the pictures on overlapping flaps? (sorry I haven't explained that very well!)

                  Yeah, they were on flaps that overlapped. You've got it there pantherpink!

                    I had totally forgotten about Pocketeers! I guess the great Grand-daddies of the Nintendo DS and PSP.

                    I had the Horse Derby one and the Fruit Machine one, they were great! There was nothing to beat them until Game and Watch came along - then it was Snoopy Tennis all the way!

                      I had a few of these, none of which I can remember, with the exception of the one that you drove a little car around some streets. There were two wheels that controlled a little magnetic car. That's it! It didn't do anything else! But damn it was fun!

                            Does anyone remember pocketeers

                            These were just brilliant plastic case toys.

                            Most of them had a wind up timer.

                            I think there was a maze game, a road race, a basketball game, but i cannot remember some of the others. Any ideas ??
