02/24/04    The following review of Vanessa's card game appeared in Games Gazette Jan-Feb 2004 from the UK:

"Omega Games are best known for their military simulation boardgames so what a surprise when a fast-paced, picture-making card game - PINUP MANIA based on top-totty VANESSA KAY - the numero uno Juggy on The Man Show turned up on the doormat.

Four photos of the delectable Vanessa have been cut into nine card-sized shapes each and players have to draw, swap, steal and cajole cards from each other to be the first to complete their given photo.

It's a fast paced game with Man's inability to think past Vanessa's boobs at the heart of play. No nudity on display makes it a tame but acceptable fun gift."

01/09/04    A new picture card added to the orginial 12 creating a Baker's Dozen - 13 picture cards each featuring a new pose. Add them to Pin Up Mania or just collect them.
