Sassy magazine is a defunct teen magazine, aimed at teenage female fans of alternative and indie rock music. It was founded in March 1988 by an Australian feminist, Sandra Yates, CEO of Matilda Publications, who based it on the teen magazine Dolly, which is still in publication in Australia.
Released in 1986, Max Backtalk is an electronic memory/reaction game that uses the player’s own voices. To begin, each player sits by a colored button and speaks a word into the microphone. The game starts by Max flashing a player’s light and repeating that player’s word. The player scores a point by quickly pressing his or her button. If your reaction time is too slow you lose a point. Max then calls another player’s word and so on. Be careful – Max can also bluff by calling one player’s word and lighting another player’s light. Any player that reacts would then lose a point. The longer you play, the faster the words are spoken and the lenses light. The player with the most points at the end is the winner. An elimination version, and a simple memory game (ala Simon) can also be played. Click here to watch the commercial with Michael Winslow from the Police Academy movies »

Created in 1988, Shark Attack was a board game in which the shark goes around in a circle devouring fish. The last fish left un-eaten is the winner.
The back of the box read:
DON’T GET GULPED!
It’s a race! And a chase! And a swim-for-your-life escape! You are one of four little fish that encounter a shark with a ferocious appetite. You’ve got to move — and move fast!
Roll the dice and move your fish. But watch out! If you’re not fast enough, the motorized shark creeps up behind and swallows your fish. You’re out of the game. The last fish to escape that shark’s bite wins the game. Click here to watch the commercial »
