Twister called itself "the game that ties you up in knots." Its detractors called it "sex in a box." Charles "Chuck" Foley, the father of nine who invented the game that became a naughty sensation in living rooms across America in the 1960s and 1970s, has died.

My two granddaughters and I just played Twister last Tuesday. I bought the game for $3.00 from my niece, who had it when her daughter was young (she is now 24). I brought it back from Michigan when I returned last year.

Prior to this, I had told my oldest granddaughter about the game Twister when she was 6. She wanted to play it, so we took scrap (already drawn on on one side) 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper and made the colored circles (12, I think). We taped them on the bottom to the carpeted floor of the gameroom so they wouldn't slide. We then made a spinner from a paper plate on which she did the colors and the L Hand, L Foot, R Hand and R Foot, and the arrow from the hands of a clock she had made at school, I think (been awhile). Maybe the hands were from an old toy clock used to teach time. This improvision actually worked out, and we had a good time playing Twister.
