It is not surprising that Parker Brothers published the card game Funny Bones just one year after Milton Bradley's board game Twister appeared, and made a smash hit, on the market. Some critics accused Milton Bradley of selling "sex in a box" because the players were the playing pieces on the Twister game board, and much physical contact ensued. The card game Funny Bones forces physical contact as two players hold one of the oversize "cards" between two body parts without dropping it. When players drop two cards or more, they lose the "hand." Time passes and games come and go. Twister became a favorite of children and college fund-raising groups; Funny Bones never really caught on.
