Generations of people have fond or maybe not so fond memories of the game Twister, and it is all thanks to a man named Charles Foley.

Mr. Foley passed away on July 1'st in St. Louis Park at the age of 82, and will forever be remembered as the man who invented this whacky  game. I can remember as a kid playing this game for hours with family and friends and having a blast.

As I got older I came to the realization that this game is really primarily for kids since it requires you to be awfully flexible. :( Foley got his start by working for a toy company in St. Paul, which later sold the game to Milton Bradley.

Although the game has changed versions a bit over the years, it was truly a pioneer in being the first interactive type board game. For more information on how this game came to be click here
