OMG! Did You Play Girl Talk and Dream Phone?

You might be used to playing games on your cell phones, but do you remember these phone-inspired board games from your childhood? I'm not positive how the topic came up, but a little while ago one of my co-workers asked me, "Do you remember the game Girl Talk: Date Line where you had to call up dates on the phone?" I had a vague recollection of sitting around the game board at a childhood sleepover giggling away, but couldn't remember many other details. One quick Google search later, I remembered that my favorite board game wasn't Girl Talk, but Dream Phone!"

In both games, players used a cell phone-like device to call potential dates. I couldn't stop laughing as I pictured my 11-year-old self playing with the clunky, pink plastic phone, completely unaware that just over a decade later I'd be the owner of an actual working phone a fraction of its size — not to mention the number of 11-year-old girls today that carry around the same phone as I do now!

Hey, does anybody cares to give me a list of the girl talk question? I really need them since I lost mine and it will just be really nice to share it with my daughter, thanks.

The game where you had to do all the chores is PARTY MANIA!! All my girlfriends were making fun of me saying it was just my mom getting my sister and I to do chores around the house! Classic game along side Dream Phone!

Yeah, I have to say I thought Mall Madness was the best. My mom wouldn't buy it for me, so I loved playdates with literally anyone who had it.

Oh yeah, I loved this games. I had the regular Girl Talk. I had that Party something game with the VHS too. I still have Dream Phone. And Mall Madness was always hands-down my fav. I loved it so much, I even bought the new version that came out a few years ago. I'm in my 20s and have two versions of Mall Madness, lol. I may have to break them out when I go home for spring break. :)

Oh my god, I so remember this game! When you called the right guy, he said "You're right, I really like you!" So cheesy.

I'm not gonna lie. I think Dream Phone is still under my bed at my parent's house. I loved playing that game. I can still sort of remember the woman's voice giving out the clues... "he's not wearing anything yellow." Hah.

I had this game up until a few years ago. It was amazing! I had the game with VHS too it was called Party something. And you had to do all these chores and other junk to be able to go to the party later that night. I still have the tape somewhere. Dream Phone was played probably every other day when I was like 8 to 11. Board games were so much cooler in the 90's.

OMG I loved (LOVED!) Dreamphone & Mall Madness. Those fake credit cards were hilarious. I remembered I hated using the fake zits on my girltalk game (i was saving them for something I assume) so if my friend didn't want to do the spin I would call for a respin every time!

Oh my god I loved this game. All the guys looked like they were fourteen and from the late eighties. Hilarious, though I don't know if it trumps Mall Madness.
