WP writes: "Ever since we first pioneered travel, people have sought a means to pass the time while getting from one place to another. Whether you were listening to stories your mother told or simply sleeping away the hours on a transatlantic flight, everyone wants the ability to while away those otherwise-wasted hours when you're confined to a comparatively small space without your usual amenities. From this, travel games were born. Granted, some of them were less than ideal if you've ever tried to play a portable version of Scrabble, you know how those tiles will miraculously fly everywhere but it was a step in the right direction. Portable video game systems are the zenith of this endeavor, requiring only the player and the system (and a healthy battery charge) to keep you entertained for hours on end. Sometimes it's good to remember where it all started and pass on to the younger generation some of the classics that might otherwise go the way of the dodo. That's how games like Touchmaster 2 are born.
