Twister's 50th Anniversary is Today! #PlayLikeHasbro

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Yep, he's about to fall, but that's all part of the fun. :)
You probably already know and love the game, but did you know that today, May 3rd, is Twister's 50th Anniversary?? Hurrah to all the wonderful games that have such lasting power, including this one that we love so much!!

We have a Twister game in the house. It's great fun for the kids. One of my grown children has one at his place too, so it's definiltey not just for children!! It's actually hysterical to be at a family gathering and have him break out the game. Adults who loved to play in their youth often times think 'they've still got it' and they want to conquer all in the game. Sometimes they do 'have it' still, and sometimes they don't... It's probably funnier when they don't, hahahaaha BUT it's all in good fun, a great way to get some stretching in, and a fun way to make new memories with family and friends.


The game comes with a Twister mat, a spinner and instructions. It's easy to play. It's easy to store too, and it's portable. You can take this game most anywhere!! I think it would be fun to play when you're having a family day at the beach!!


To play, each player has to do what is designated on the spinner (like putting your right hand on a yellow circle on the mat). They must stay in the position they are in and maneuver around both themselves and others on the board as each turn comes due. Elbows and knees can't touch the mat or you're out. The last one standing wins! The game is for 2 or more players, ages 6+  and is definitely a classic that is well-known and well-loved. If you haven't taken yours out lately, it's time to give it a go! OR if you don't own one....well, what are you waiting for??? This game is truly classic-style fun at its finest. It makes a great gift idea too.

Happy Anniversary, Twister!!

I can not believe that game has been around that long. It is such a simple game and yet so much fun. I will have to get a new one now that my youngest is old enough to play - we will have to have a homeschool playdate with this game!

Ms KathyKenny said...

Twister is so crazy. I played this and I realized that when you're heavy, it's hard to win at this game haha.

alissa apel said...

Isaak has been really into games lately. Just this weekend he wanted to play All Queen's Chess, Chess, Checkers, Battleship, and we cut him off at Scrabble. I just had too much to do. That's a game I know any one of us would beat him in. Twister would be a better choice.

Ashley McCardia said...

Holy crap, Twister is old! My girls are just now getting old enough to play and love it.

Kenya G. Johnson blogger of A Storytelling Publication said...

You know what, I am going to get one of these before summer. It will be hilarious for the three of us to do it. My husband would lose because he’s not flexible. I’d probably lose for not being able to hold myself up. And as I’m typing this I’m saying Twister probably hurts now. LOL! It sure used to be fun though. And dang that Twister is only 5 years older than me. Not sure how I feel about that.

~ Noelle said...

I should get this for Broxton... I bet he would love it :)
That picture up top is classic. Just goes to show how much fun can be had with that game!

Holly @ Woman Tribune said...

Wow, 50 years! Twister holds a special place in my heart for sure, and it's great that it has and still continue to stand the test of time and entertain more generations of kids, teenagers, and slightly immature adults.
