Twenty-eight years ago, one of the hottest gifts beneath local Christmas trees was the 'Game of Tamaqua.'
Today, at least one of those games still exists, and in near-perfect condition.
Carol Umbriac of Lake Hauto discovered the 1983 game in a closet and took it to her job at Nancy's Fresh Cut Meats, Hometown, where employees and visitors enjoyed a trip down memory lane. The item is proving to be a conversation piece.
"I don't think it was played much," said Umbriac. "I can't remember."
