Crossfire board game

crossfire

Classic retro game Crossfire
This was one of my best christmas presents as a kid, i remember asking for bigtrak but got this instead around the late 70’s early 80’s. Crossfire was first made in 1971 and is a 2 player game. The idea of the game was to fire small ball bearings through a plastic gun, and aim them at a bigger ball bearing with plastic around it, and keep hitting it until you score a goal. This would go on for hours would you had blisters on your trigger finger and had to give up.

Shrinky Dinks

Shrinky Dinks
These were often found in Cereal boxes in the 80’s, they were large flexible sheets with often pre-printed outlines of childrens TV characters. You would then colour in the image and pop it in the oven and wait for the sheet to shrink down to a small hard object keeping it’s scale and colour.
