That's vacuum fluorescent display, not liquid crystal. Like I mentioned I had a Pac Man one. I think they still count for the spirit of this thread though.

Here's another LCD radioshack game I had as a kid

http://youtu.be/R5hxxArgrUg

It was my brothers and I remember playing it a lot as a kid.

I also remember scrambling it. If you repeatedly removed the battery and inserted it, the game would mess up a little and you would have to figure it out how to play it with the mistakes.

I was a bored little kid. I also did this with other LCD games in the past.

Why am I sorta ashamed of owning so many of these things that you all have posted LOL.

I know it is not LCD but does anyone have a Merlin? I picked one up and have yet to try it and for the life of me cannot remember how it plays LOL.

Yes, luckily I still had the manual for it when I found it last. Once again I have no idea where it was put away, it'll probably turn up again to surprise me when I least expect it.

Some neighbors down the street had one. I remember playing it once or twice with them and they showed me how. A few years later I was watching the house and feeding the pets while they were on vacation and I couldn't remember how to play it at all. :lol:
