Boardgame 'Dial Away: the worldwide telephone game' devised by Waddingtons for British Telecom International in 1983.

“Dial Away” is a game devised by Waddingtons for British Telecom International as promotional item for British Telecom. It was intended for players aged 10 and up.

Players were tasked with completing a given phone number, with the country, area code and the cost of the call.

To do that, players spun a dial and collected the needed numbers available on the section where the dial pointed at.

If players did not get the correct combination of numbers, they paid a forfeit which consisted of talking about a certain topic for a minute.
