The game “Twister” was originally called “Pretzel”

With the support of Reyn Guyer Sr. and his son, Charles Foley and Neil Rabens submitted for patents and trademark rights for the game we all know as “Twister”… although it was originally called “Pretzel”.

Foley asked his good friend Mel Taft, Sr. V.P. for Milton Bradley, for a product idea presentation. The company embraced the idea but renamed it “Twister” -some say because the “Pretzel” name was not available.

“Twister” was the first game on store shelves that used players as the playing pieces.
