Perfection Game


Perfection was released by the Milton Bradley company in the 70s. The object is to put all the pieces into matching holes on the board (pushed down) before a time limit runs out. When time runs out, the board springs up, causing all or at least many of the pieces to fly out. In the most common version, there are 25 pieces to be placed within 60 seconds.

  1. Perfection, I remember the commercial airing alot in the 1970s when I was still a little kid (I was born in 1969). I didnt own the game itself as my family was too poor. My family was dirt poor and we couldnt afford store bought toys advertised on tv like this one. My toy collection pretty much consisted of mis-matched odds and ends, bits and pieces, that were handed down to me by friends, or found in the streets somewhere, etc. Toy commercials, like this one (and being a big watcher of tv, I saw thousands of them), only served to torture me.

    I DID get to play it a few times as there was a kid or two in the neighborhood who owned the game.

    1. Dear Anonymous,
      Though you say your childhood was poor and those commercials tortured you... I would guesstimate that you are more imaginative as an adult than alot of your peers! Not getting things tend to give out minds a sharp sense of nostalgia and well-being. I consider you a fortunate person!

  2. This game used to scare me when I was little -- I didn't like the timer on it -- too stressful!

  3. This game was very intense to play. It was freaky when it would pop up all of a sudden
