Old-School Gaming: Tackle! v Meccano, George Best v John Lowe

Tackle! was a smashing board game of the 70s with an amusing double-entendre for a name. It promised all the real thrills and spills of a real tackle, without the inconvenience of getting up from the living-room floor. Not many people remember it these days. Do you?
How about a Meccano budgie? It was always the taking to bits torture that ruined the enjoyment of construction for us. But an autogyro might have been good.
