Description Edit | History

A very nice peg-board game, now re-issued. The plastic board has 100 holes, numbered in a oft reversing spiral with 1 in the center. A deck of numbered cards from 1-100 is shuffled and players start with 4 each. You may either play a card and stick a peg in, or draw a card, the hand limit being 4. And of course, you're trying to get five of your pegs in a row to win. Simple, except that playing a card allows you to place a peg in that number, or any empty number above. So with a 60, I can fill a space from 60 to 100, the outside rows effectively, but with a 6, I can play practically anywhere, especially the key points in the center area. The game is for 2-3 players, but works even better when played in partnership, your partner frustrated as you fill high numbers with low cards, you frustrated as your partner fails to block. Very good fun and nice for non-gamers.

More Information Edit | History

This game has been made by several game companies Milton Bradley put out the game of 99 in 1959, this one only had 60 cards with it 1-16 then only even cards to 96 then 97, 98,99,00. the 00 is wild and can be played on any number the object is the same as 5ive straight. Sometime later they changed it to be identical to 5ive straight.

Other makers that I know of are SKOR-MOR,
SPL,and Stillmore Products.

Versions called "The Game of 99" were introduced by Broman/Percepta Corporation and Hartville Games in the early 1960's.

If anyone else has more info it would be great to read it.
