George and Neal have an unhealthy obsession with Milton Bradley and other board games. This obsession, however, has proven beneficial. For instance George and Neal won second place at the Life Board Game National Competition two times (1956 and 1978). Also, George and Neal amassed a small fortune after creating the game "Tic-Tac-Toe-Two, which was the same game as Tic-Tac-Toe, except it had 3 extra boxes and 74 needlessly complicated rules. If you could withstand the tutorial, it was a surprisingly fun game. Its sales in America were abysmal, but did well in Australia under its alternate name "Tic-Tac-Dingo-Ate-My-Baby-Toe".
