There's no "I" in "team."
Those are words to live by, says Reyn Guyer, the co-inventor of Twister and the Nerf ball.
"Everybody gives me the credit, but I am a part of it. I've led the teams," Guyer told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Wednesday. "If you have a team of two, three, four, or five people, good things happen."
Good things certainly happened with Twister, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016. But the game Guyer and his team made and licensed to Milton Bradley almost ended up on the Island of Misfit Toys.
When Milton Bradley launched Twister, the now-iconic game was not well received and the company was planning to pull it from the market.
But before the decision was put into action, Johnny Carson played Twister on the "Tonight Show" in 1966 and the rest was history.
