I did! If I remember right it was called Johnny Astro or something like that with little landing gear you taped to balloons. I loved that thing.

Nope. Looks pretty cool, though. I did have the whirlybird helicopter on a wire that went in circles and you tried to pick up stuff on the ground.

I have a very old Battleship game, and on the box cover, a dad and son are playing battleship, while the mom and daughter and delightedly doing dishes in the background.
