I think I have the correct decade. There was a game with a balloon you pumped up until it popped. I don’t remember any of the details except something indicated how many times you had to press the pump, and the game ended when the balloon popped. Thanks in advance. You may not see me back for hours at a time as I have stuff to do.
You’re surely thinking of “KABOOM!” (third down on this page.)
I also used to love “Bang Box” in which you hammered plastic nails into a cardboard box containing a balloon – pop it, and you lose!
That’s it. Thank you.
That sounds like fun. I bet my kids would love the tension/anticipation of the pop. Too bad they couldn’t make such a game today, some kid would inhale the bits of popped balloon and they’d get sued.
