Here’s some news that will leave you feeling bluer than the circle your left hand somehow has to reach.

Charles ‘Chuck’ Foley, the man who invented the popular game Twister, died July 1 in suburban Minneapolis. He was 82.

Foley and a colleague were commissioned by a manufacturing company to develop a game back in the ’60s, which led to their creation, initially called Pretzel, but later changed to Twister once Milton Bradley bought it.

The game got widespread exposure after Johnny Carson played it with Eva Gabor on ‘The Tonight Show’ in 1966. Hasbro, which now owns the game, says it still sells well today.

Foley’s son said his father didn’t make a lot of money from Twister and he actually invented a number of other ones, as well.
