That she made that dartboard or she bought it as-is raises questions either way.

    Oh, I don’t know. I could imagine such a thing being manufactured and marketed to girls back then. It was the time of such games as Mystery Date, after all.

    I agree. It doesn’t really seem any weirder than Mystery Date or Clue. And 1966-67 would have been the peak of the spy/secret agent fad (James Bond, Our Man Flint, Matt Helm, Man from U.N.C.L.E., Nick Fury Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., Mission:Impossible), so “spy” probably would have been one of the options.

    “ZAP!” Betty has quite a throwing arm!

  • Joe S. Walker says:

    Some people could get a whole series out of that premise: “Dartboard of Destiny”.

  • Snark Shark says:

    no real spy would ever wear that HORRIBLE hat!

  • Evan Waters says:

    “Dial B For Betty” would be a great book.

  • Randal says:

    Your statement confuses me. I’m a forty-year-old married man and I do that dart thing every morning. You don’t?

    Today I’m a lady in distress.

    I’m curious about the partially obstructed choice at 5 o’clock. Is she a “smarty type” with an armful of books? A “party type” letting Archie do body shots off of her? A “Barty type” standing tall at 3’9″? Or the type everyone stays away from because she ate the Bean Burrito Supreme last night?

    That hat! She’s peacocking, isn’t she?
