A friend has a beautiful house (well, cabin might be more accurate) on a lake in Maine. It’s not insulated, so you can’t live there year-round. So it’s a summer vacation house, and it’s a bit of a time capsule, filled with flotsam and knick-knacks from the 70s. Including a killer collection of board games.
Anybody remember …
That’s TV host Peter Marshall in the picture. Apparently Peter’s given name was actually Ralph Pierre LaCock. At some point that was deemed not fitting for a television personality.
Movin’ on! How about…
Art auction madness! At some point I loved this game. Now that I’ve played it again, I can’t recall the attraction.
Side note: My family was big on board games. I was an insufferable poor loser. Why they let me keep joining in, I do not know.
Who could forget Scribbage? Um, me. But maybe you remember it. Looks like a mashup of Scrabble and Speed Dominos.
I LOVED PAYDAY! Now my daughter loves PayDay.
And here’s Trouble, with the famous Pop O Matic die roller (also used on another Kohner game, Headache). Good times. Perhaps one of the last commercial products to advertise itself as “frustrating” – see upper left of box.
Got any stuff like this in your attic?
