Baby Boomer Game

Baby Boomer Game, when you think of game, do you think of dominoes, UNO, or Yahtzee?  Or other games that you played with your friends: Clue, Twister or Life?  

If you do, you probably played a lot of card or board games, and dominoes while growing up during the fifties and sixties.  Wasn't that a fun time!   I have recently purchased new games, Uno and Yahtzee.   The dominoes below were my Dad's who loved to play many card and domino games!  

Household Favorite Games

However, the Baby Boomer Game is a memory test of pop culture during our era.  Can you answer all 20 questions?

Recently, one of my high school friends sent me this game via email and suggested I use it on this site!  I don't know who the author of this game was, but  I have tweaked the overall look of the test and made it where you can list your score at the end of the game.  Let me know what your score is by completing the form below. 

Enjoy the memories!

I answered 17 of the 20 and was proud of myself!  You will be able to record your results on the attached form.  Good Luck!
