Toss Across Game

Toss Across was first introduced in 1969 by the Ideal Toy Company.

It is a game in which participants play tic-tac-toe by tossing small beanbags at targets in an attempt to change the targets to their desired letter. The targets are three-sided blocks situated on a frame such that the impact of the beanbags can turn the block, changing the letter. Each block has a blank side, an X, and an O. As in traditional tic-tac-toe, the first player to get three of their letters in a row wins the game.

  1. I must have got that for Christmas in 1979 or so. I remember unwrapping it.

    It was a game of luck -- at least with my skill level. I never mastered getting the X or O desired.

    It was just random. If you were lucky enough to hit it at all the thingy would spin around several times.

    It never became a favorate but it kept us busy for a while.
