WA HOO!!

The skilled craftsman who makes the Deluxe Wa Hoo boards has recently taken ill and, at least for the time being, I will not be selling the Deluxe boards. If and when he recovers, I will list them on the website... http://wahoogames.com.

I think his remaining stock is still available on eBay while they last. Look for games marketed by the eBay id kathys_korner777.

The Original Wa Hoo, our most popular game, is still available in ample quantity.

History of Wa Hoo (as I know it)

In late August of 1991, I began trying to find the original proprietors of the version of WAHOO that was popular in Texas when I was a child (1960s). The name of the business on the board I had when I was a kid (and still have) was Creative Designs, Inc. of Henderson, Texas. I have other games made by Creative Designs, Inc., but they have Gatesville, Texas written on them. I have one game that has the name Creative Ideas, Inc. of Gatesville, Texas which I assume is the same company.

On 4 September 1991, I called a business called Creative Image in Henderson, Texas. What I thought might be the company that made the game was, in fact, a beauty salon. The lady working there said she got calls all the time about WAHOO boards. I subsequently called the Henderson Texas Chamber of Commerce. The lady called me some time later and gave me the name of the people that made the game in Henderson in the 1960s. Their names were E.L. and Helen Sadler. She said she thought that they had retired to the Dallas area.

I found Mr. Sadler in the Dallas telephone book and called him. Remember, this was long before the internet was publicly available. He told me about how he and his brother John (then deceased) had made these games and referred me to his son, Keith, who had briefly manufactured the game in the mid-1980s. Mr. Sadler said Keith could provide me with details of how the game was made, warehoused, and marketed.

I subsequently called Keith Sadler and made arrangements to come by his office and discuss making the game with him. I visited his office on 11 September 1991. He had only made the game for a short time. He said he did it primarily out of sentimental reasons because he remembered his father making the game in their garage when he was a kid. Keith and his family lived in Henderson and Keith’s uncle, John Sadler, lived in Gatesville. Thus, the origins of the boards I have that bear the same design and company name, but different town names.
