Running Myself Ragged
Posted at 10:25 PM


DAMN, I LOVED THIS GAME: I love the colors and the pieces and the geometry and the way the orange popped off the green. We had this when we were kids. I knew all the tricks, too. I remember the packaging. I did some digging and the game hit the market in 1980 called, “Run Yourself Ragged.” Other versions were called “Screwball Scramble” and “SNAFU” with different colorways.

In trying to remember it, I knew it had “Ragged” in the name. I’m feeling a little ragged trying to get everything done. Ain’t that always the case? Fuckage.

Nice blast from the past! I completely had forgotten about this game until I saw the picture that you posted. It was one of my favorites as a rugrat and even if I didn’t know how to play it properly always enjoyed tinkering w/it. This and Mouse Trap.

Hell yeah man! That game was awesome! Once I mastered it, I could do two of the little silver balls at once. Mad Skillz…
