In the 12 Track Editions I have several copies of a brochure by the former POW designers, M.J.C. - The Marine Jockey Commission. To read that brochure follow this link.


The game owes much to Bingo and its name is a pun on the slang or common name for Bingo "Housie, Housie".


The game's design, particularly the 8 Track version may have been inspired by the packaging of Bar One Cigarettes, a popular brand in the 1940s.
