memories of the ’80s – Pizza Party board game

In this decade, an Italian staple became so integral to North American culture, that it even morphed into a board game: Pizza Party.

Created by Parker Brothers, the game debuted in 1986 as a new interpretation of a memory game for ages 4-8.

For up to four players, each player is trying to remember what is hidden beneath the pizza’s circular playing pieces representing pizza toppings: pepperoni, mushrooms and onions.

Each player has a slice with six ingredient circles and on each turn is trying to match ingredients to fill up their slice or get a switch card to one up their opponent.

But for most of us, it wasn’t the game that was alluring for us or younger siblings or friends – it was the tv commercial, which was annoyingly hard to forget.
