A good bet for the adults on the list is a game, especially if it is one the whole family can play. Reports from Lethbridge stores that handle games indi- cate a noticeable upsurge in sales in the past year or so for games designed for adults. Most of the best sellers, how- ever, are the kind of game the entire family (excluding the young children i can enjoy to- gether. The Joca! scene seems to fol- low a nation wide craze for adult games that has develop- ed in the past few years. Some of the "executive games" which have gone over well in other parts of the coun- try seem, however, to be doing less-well locally. One department store report- ed rather poor sales for such executive games as Sandbox, The Hooker. Courtship and Ac- tion Reaction. Sandbox was a particularly slow seller, while Action Reaction did better than most. A local wholesale operation noted a big increase last year, Chamber representatives hold meeting in Red Deer Commerce and industrial de- velopment of the Canadian north was the main topic of discussion at a chamber of Changes were also made in the University Ward organiza- tion.

This year they have increased their stock in preparation for a continuation of the grown-up game craze. They listed Monopoly as the big seller, ns did several re- tailers. Yahlzc, Hook and SLock- ticlt-r are also doing well. Even chess sets are selling better than they did a few yars ago. The move toward games as a form of entertainment appears to extend to teen agers and youngsters, at least for several of the local stores. Department stores generally reported over all increases in games sales in recent years, with the largest increases in Ihe adult variety. Life, Pokeno, Scrabble, Risk and puzzles such as Instant Insanity are good sellers. One store said family games such as Probe are selling par- ticularly well. While sophisticated adult games are the fad for the "smart adult set" in larger cen- tres, family oriented games appear to hold sway in Leth- bridge.
