Simon Says Get Your Game On!

Here is the cue card for the CASology #29 challenge. Game! What a perfect challenge for Super Bowl Sunday except I went in a completely different direction. {nothing new there!}

Some of you old-timers will remember this great game called "Simon Says." I hung onto the one we had when the kids were little, and it still works! LOL
I added a computer generated sentiment, and the inside says "CELEBRATE!" I thought this would make a fun birthday card for kids, and then I realized that kids today will probably not even know what this means, so I'll use it for a card for someone who gets it :)

So who are you rooting for today? I'm not much of a football fan, but my favorite color is purple, so I'm giving Baltimore my vote :) I only watch the commercials anyway so I'll be multi-tasking while the game is on.

Here's hoping you have a great time getting your game on too!

Oh my goodness, your Simon is just brilliant! Played with one all the time! Jim made chili and I am makiing some beef stew. He will disappear to his man cave when the game starts. Me, I want to watch the puppy bowl on Animal Planet.

A blast from the past! I used to love that game, it was awesome, as is your card! You're a winner, at any "game" (card challenge) you play!
Love ya!

LOVE IT!!!! Yes, I remember Simon Says too and oh how I wish I still had mine. Loved to play that game and would usually try to take it away from the kids!! CUTE card!!

Not really concerned about the Super Bowl - but.....the Puppy Bowl comes on here in a minute! FUN to watch but just gets boring after a while.

Ha! LOE this blast from the past...YES, I had this game...LOED Simon Says! Great way to use your papers to recreate the game...so fun! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!

As for the Super Bowl, I'm all about the snacks and the commercials! I'm cheering on the Ravens since the quarterback went to the high school where I now work...I got all caught up in the team spirit!

I didn't have a Simon, but all my friends did and I was jealous. :-( I did have a pong....talk about excitement....blip....blip....blip...Kids wouldn't even touch that now. I wonder if they have one in the Smithsonian....lol
Love your card, what sparked that idea in your mind?
I'm going with the Ravens because that's who Princess the camel picked, and she's pretty darn accurate.

Great take on this challenge, Carol. Brought back memories for me too.

What? I remember playing Simon Says but not with the game you're showing. I just don't remember it. Guess I'm too young. Bwhaaaaaaa

That is a very clever idea for CASology, though..thats for sure.
