Lrg Unique Game
Unique Game for Party Amusement Modern Mechanix, 1933 – surely to be a Wii game soon….

“SPIKE the Potato” is a highly entertaining game for any party. All that is needed is a single large potato, a number of paper cones and some needles. The paper cones are about 7 in. long and 1-1/2″ in diameter at the large end. When you roll them into shape, slip a needle or pin into the small end and daub it with glue. This, when dry, will hold it in place. At the same time, glue the edge of the paper fast. Then pull a small tuft of cotton into a fluffy ball and after rubbing some glue on the inside of the open cone end, push the cotton in.

    Wow! What fun! Am having an election party tonight and this is just the thing. I wonder if you can substitute an Avocado say and make the game a little more exotic :)
