I am looking for the name of an old game from that time period, it involved looking into a periscope type mechanism and turning a plane attached to a metal hanger thingie, you moved the plane around and dropped bombs on a board that had the missile i think with a magnet on the tip ??
please help if you can ???

I don't know. It took SEVEN minutes. If we were the EMS in Los Angeles that might be acceptable, but THIS IS BGG!

I've seen much longer response times and few shorter. Elkar also has games entered and rated, though you're better on comments. Tell you what: let's get Elkar an Avatar: you match me, and I'll match you; and we'll see if we can get others to pitch in to a deserving boardgamegeek. I'll drop a -- the next move is yours, sir!

(PS: Would you guys put up a "Right Turn Only" for goodness sakes! laugh )

I'm old school. I don't mind folks gifting GG, but I think the first 30 for an avatar should be earned the hard way (regular contributions).

Thanks for the GG! I was just the right person in the right place at the right time.

I had forgotten all about this game, but used to have it when I was a kid. I can't remember how old I was, but I do remember sneaking out of bed one night to play it and getting in trouble. Heh, good times!
