My daughter was at first slightly miffed at the large, blinking, beeping device. But she decided to give it a try.
Can you believe that over 5 million of these sold, and it was the best selling game/toy item of 1980?
According to the official instructions, Merlin plays six games, as long as you count making beeping noises as a game (AKA Music Machine):
- Tic Tac Toe
- Music Machine
- Echo, a game similar to Simon
- Blackjack 13
- Magic Square, a pattern game similar to Lights Out
- Mindbender, a game similar to Mastermind
