    I used to have a couple of these games. One of them was just had a small car that you drove around on a street layout and parked in a garage. Another one was a small pin ball machine. No batteries, simple and not particularly clever, but didn't know any better back then. Great !!

        Anyone remember these little gems from the 80's? I remember having these four - it took me ages to remember what they were called.


        Here is a good link to view the other Pocketeers that were available back then.

              The quiz that everyone was trying to complete has one in it, and someone had a memory of a horse racing game. I thought it might have been like the racing one shown above

                    Just looked again,and my memory is wrong. I did not have Golf, as that was one that came out of the box. may have been angling

                        Still got Golf unboxed & Grand Prix in the Rock & Roll box ( ) and Rally. Do you's realise you got me looking for them. I must still have the others I had if that's anything to go by as I chuck nothing away.

                        Now where's Rock & Roll, if I can find that & box it up again.

                          I had the fruit machine (still do) and the table football one - although that was stolen from me on the last day of school (you know - when everyone's allowed to bring a toy in). Happy days.
                          Their light of pocket torch, of signal flare,
                          Licks at the edge of unsuspected places,
                          While others scan, under an arc-lamp's glare,
                          Nursery, kitchen sink, or their own faces.

                              these were my two (only two I had? not sure, but these are still in my mum's loft somewhere)

                              Both oddly named..first wasn't a rally, more like a driving school
                              Second more of an obstacle course (oh and my little orange boat always seemed to get stuck as you tried to move it across the 'lake')
