Subject: Game Questions From The 90's

Written By: Matt McEwen on 04/11/04 at 05:24 p.m.

I am designing a game for me and my friends to play.  We all were born around 1985 and grew up in the 90's.  So I have made 2 reditions of a game I call back in our day.  So this game has many questions that all relate to stuff we would know growing up.  Here are some of the examples... computer type pets (TAMAGACHI/ GIGA PETS)...#1 type of bracelet (SNAP/SLAP)...Shredders 2 main minions (BEBOP & ROCKSTEADY)...Fresh prince of bellairs cousin (CARLTON)... and so on.  Anyhow I have come up with a little over 200 questions and have run out.  So anything you guys can think of (movies, cartoons, music, commercials, trends, and anything else you can think of) would help.  Thankyou.
