Not Parker Brothers game[edit]

You know, this isn't a Parker Brothers game.--Amanaplanacanalpanama 07:36, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

"Factual history"[edit]

I moved this text from the article's page:

Someone please move the relevant (and referenced) information back to the article's page. — Val42 04:35, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Controversy[edit]

The commercial slant of this Wikipedia entry is a bit ridiculous. In fact, it verges on being considered an advertisement for Jax Ltd, Inc. Not to mention the fact that it's simply wrong... the company's claim that the game was invented in the 1970s by a single individual and is exclusively licensed to Jax is a stretch at best. My father taught us to play "sequence" in the mid-1970s on his own homemade board, and at that time he told us that his parents and his uncle used to play it all the time, so the claim that the game was invented from whole cloth in the 1970s and then licensed to a commercial interest is simply ridiculous. These sorts of baldly commercial Wiki entries are a cancer on Wikipedia... it really reduces the overall quality of entries overall. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.69.227.125 (talk) 21:21, 1 October 2008 (UTC)

notability[edit]

Could not find direct reference to demonstrate notability. It might be borderline in terms of originality but it certainly could use some more references. There appear to be questions of if there is a related card game that precedes this as it would be possible to play with just carsd and counters. There are two internet claims of older games that seem to be copies but the above talk for example would raise issues of the games novelty.Tetron76 (talk) 11:16, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
