I can't remember all the details but I believe there were 4 different colored hands and you had to slap a card.

I had this game. Somewhat rapid paced drawing a card trying to get pairs when you got them you slam down on your color them some kind of consequences for last one to hit theirs. This came has been remade over the years think with different rules. I had the original. Oldie butba goodie

Hands Down, made by Ideal from 1964 to 1974. The 1968 Sears Wishbook listed it for $4.19.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, an example of how a TV network can shamelessly use the sponsor of one show to promote several others within a few minutes. The show: "Top Cat" (rerun). The Sponsor: Ideal Toys. This aired on NBC (12/4/65). First two ads were for Hands Down (updated version) and Mouse Trap. Then, next break, an ad for a board game based on the sitcom, "Camp Runamuck." The cartoon drawing on the box looked nothing like the stars of the show: Character actors Arch Johnson (camp leader), Dave Ketchum and Dave Madden (camp counselors). Second, and more popular, the "Get Smart" Exploding Time Bomb game, in which a two-piece, with spring and suction cup, plastic toy bomb, was the integral part of the game. On the box, a photo of Don Adams (on shoe phone) is superimposed against a cartoon city scene, littered with gun and bomb-toting thugs. The player markers are molded in the shape of Maxwell Smart (four different colors).
