Milton Bradley Memory Game – 1966

The Milton Bradley memory game was first created in 1966. In Australia, the game was made by the John Sands company and in Germany Otto Maier Verlag, Ravensburg, W. Germany. The UK had the game made by Waddingtons.

The 1966 version of the game included 108 cards illustrated by the likes of Mary Blair, Alice & Martin Provensen, Roger Duvoisin and Ray & Charles Eames.

The game was intended for kids age 10 to adult, and could involve any number of players, though I expect if there were more than 6 it could potentially get a bit boring.

Original copies of this game are highly coveted and I’m lucky to own one that has the complete set of 108 cards. It’s in good used condition, but that’s as it should be for a game that has been so well-loved by so many people.
