I remember them being 10p each in our local newsagent. Used to spend my dinnermoney on them, on a regular basis. I also vaguely recall my dad giving me a proper bollocking as i nicked a quid out of his wallet to go and buy some :oops:

Yep, remember these well.
In fact, I still have some, stashed away in the loft at my parents house.

HOLY GOD YES!

I had completely forgotten about them, but yeah I used to absolutely love them.

Looking back I'm not sure why. :lol:

We didn't have too much to entertain us on the move back then, so i guess they filled a niche for a while :)

I looked on ebay the other day, you can still buy them, although they're a tadge more expensive than back then....

I might still get a couple for old times sake. :D

I used to have a rub off game I played when I was a youngster as well.

Used to have the Pac Man for President Sticker on my door, and use to stick the stickers on everything.. I'd love to get them again, Rayne very kindly gave me the Nintendo equivalents for free a while back, which had Double Dragon and Zelda Scratch Cards
