    I still own mine. Those were the days. You could play a game without being interrupted by notifications. You were completely alone with your entertainment.

    I got this for Christmas and loved it. I used to think it looked like a phone and sometimes played with it as such. Thanks for your video

    Very cool flashback!

    I saw this in the Henry Ford Museum here in Michigan a few days ago and a flood of memories came back. I know 100 % I played with this as a kid and forgot about it for 30 some years. I had to come to Youtube and see it. 😀

    That’s awesome it still works. I loved that game.

    Does this ever bring back memories! I got one of these for my birthday in 1981. I think the you’ve-won-tic-tac-toe sound is forever imprinted on my memory.

  13. Chris Baldwin on July 30, 2020 at 12:21 pm

    I still have mine, too!

  14. Jim Leonard on July 30, 2020 at 12:24 pm

    Thanks for reminding. It is funny seeing it again.

    I had this……I’m 45 now, actually 45 and a half…lol… We played the hell out of this game years ago…. They made a preproduction of Merlin maybe about 15 years ago approx…

  16. VJ Rei on July 30, 2020 at 12:32 pm

    My brother and sister had it, I never knew how it worked until now… 40 years later.

  17. Marvel Hazeldene on July 30, 2020 at 12:32 pm

    That is so cool! I would love to see more games for sure.

  20. db happiness on July 30, 2020 at 12:34 pm

    I had this game… Loved it as a 12 year old.

  21. Tim O'Brien on July 30, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    Had Merlin as a kid & loved it. I seem to remember a car racing game on it. Am I right or is that another one  ?

  22. MS NPC on July 30, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    I had this! It was my best friend for years!

  23. Elsa Pena on July 30, 2020 at 12:44 pm

    After all these years since I was Two, I held one today😭😂😄.

  24. Mandark Astronomonov on July 30, 2020 at 12:49 pm

    I just saw this game on "Let’s make a deal". I can’t believe I haven’t thought about it in over 30 years. The memories come flooding back.

  25. Mark Network on July 30, 2020 at 12:50 pm

    More Merlin please 🙂

  26. Ann Mari on July 30, 2020 at 12:51 pm

    This made me smile!!! Now I gotta go look on eBay!

  27. sara donnelly on July 30, 2020 at 12:54 pm

    My favourite game ever, this brought back a ton of memories, the music one was one of the best, although I enjoyed them all, especially as you didn’t have to stick to what was in the manual, although good, you could just make up an old stuff, very envious that you still have yours…

    I bought a Merlin game back around the same time (78 or 79) and I loved playing with that thing. I enjoyed mine for years but don’t know what happened to it, as I tended to move around a lot back then. I remember I bought it at a grocery store of all places, called Albertsons. They were open 24 hours and I remember paying around $40 for it, which was a rather tidy sum to spend on something like this – for me anyway. Yours still looks brand new. Great memories from back then!

    My dad says he had a Merlin at some point. Too bad he doesn’t have it anymore, though.
    It’s still a nifty device, though. Goes to show what a bit of engineering could do back in the old days.

  30. Eric Purkey on July 30, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    My dad had he played it my brother I played and worn it out I am 44 years old.
