game

The Jacmar Manufacturing Company made "electronic" question and answer games in the 1940s and afterwards. These covered a range of subjects and usually involved making contact with appropriate wires so that a light would illuminate when the correct answer was found. Power came from a battery beneath the game board's surface.
