    Re: Pocketeers

    I had a couple near the tail end of the 70's.That long ago now, which ones they were I just cannot remember.I have a feeling I was getting into small handheld electronic games about the same time i got them so they never really caught on with me.They were a christmas presant I think from parants.

    I had (still have) the Rally/Driving School one pictured on page 2 of this thread. I also had a Golf one, and a secondhand blue set of mazes (2 on each side) with small ball bearings which you had to steer round them (lower left of the group photo on this page). They should bring 'em back.

    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 ??

    I've had the wheel Of Fortune, it's somewhere at my parents house if it's not been chucked away.

    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!

    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!

    Re: Pocketeers

    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!)

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