Gnip Gnop Game from the '70s

Gnip Gnop anyone?

Introduced by Parker Brothers in 1971, Gnip Gnop was ping pong spelled backward. The object of this two-person tabletop game was to hit tall six balls into your opponent's side first. Although I was very small when this game was popular, I know I've played it. I'm guessing someone's older brother or sister had it. 

Anyone remember Gnip Gnop?

Check out this vintage Gnip Gnop commercial.

I had one of these until my older brother got mad because I beat him and slammed his fist through one of the side's plastic tops. Game over.

I have never heard of this game! Looks fun and challenging though. I like that the name is Ping Pong backwards, but I thought the "g" was silent. Woulda sounded better as nip nop in my opinion!
