15 Vintage Board Games That Made Me LOL
What crosses your mind when you think of your favorite “vintage board game”? “Fireball Island”? “Hero Quest”? “Mouse Trap”? Plain-Jane “Monopoly”? Well, it just so happens that I was browsing eBay one night for vintage board games and came across a few entries that I never expected…some were totally off the wall unbelievable that I had to post them here. I hope you enjoy discovering these entries as much as I did…at the very least, one of these ought to make you chuckle a bit.
15. “Class Struggle”
My Thoughts: Learning about capitalist America = Fun for the whole family!
My Thoughts: “Mondays…”
13. “Mr. T”
My Thoughts: I pity the fool who passed “Go”.
12. “All About Dallas, Texas”
My Thoughts: I’d make a joke, but I value my life too much.
11. “Public Assistance”
My Thoughts: I’m not sure why they bothered making a board game of this when so many people are “playing” it already…
10. “Snoopy and the Red Baron”
My Thoughts: Because shooting down imaginary targets from the top of a dog house is incredibly fun.
9. “General Hospital”
My Thoughts: “Surprise! You’re father’s daughter is really your grandmother’s second cousin! I win!”
My Thoughts: Do I get bonus points for calling “Rocky” a bum if I pull off a flawless Burgess Meredith impersonation?
7. “No Respect”
My Thoughts: Bonus points for playing this in the middle of a golf course with Journey’s “Any Way You Want It” blaring from your golf bag.
6. “Bermuda Triangle”
My Thoughts: The real goal of the game is to keep your pieces from going missing.
5. “Raise the Titanic”
My Thoughts: The cold dead corpse of Leonardo DiCaprio not included.
My Thoughts: I suppose it would be more catchy than “Depression”.
My Thoughts: Because someone decided that the board game would be much more exciting than that train wreck of a movie.
2. “Capital Punishment”
My Thoughts: Nothing says family game night like capital punishment…I’ll take lethal injection for $400, Alex.
1. “Superman II”
Child: “Mommy! Mommy!”
Mom: “What honey?”
Child: “Timmy is being mean to me!”
Mom: “What’s he doing?”
Child: “He won’t let me kneel before Zod!”
