People have been getting twisted and tangled playing Twister since the 1960s! You'll fall over with laughter as you get 'tied up in knots'!
Twister is played on a large plastic mat spread on the floor or ground. The mat is the board game. The mat has four rows of large colored circles on it with a different color in each row: red, yellow, blue, and green. A spinner is attached to a square board and serves as a die for the game.
The spinner is divided into four labeled sections: right foot, left foot, right hand, and left hand. Each of those four sections is divided into four colors (red, yellow, blue, and green).
After spinning, the combination is called (example: "right hand, yellow") and players move their matching hand or foot to a dot of the correct color. There is no limit to how many can play at once!
Twister patented by Charles F. Foley and Neil Rabens in 1966, did not become a success until the actress Eva Gabor played it with Johnny Carson on television's Tonight Show on May 3, 1966.
