Bravo Pocs - labyrinth - thx for the memories!
Chess - had a friend, Jim M. in HS that played me and 3 others all at one blind folded. He beat me and I think the others too. Look up Byrd Chess Club 1975.
Backgammon -A GF loved to play that and Go. We'd always play it on the floor. Her mother used to wryly comment that it was not typical for ruthless opponents to play a game snuggled together on the same side of the game board.

Then there's that... not a board game... thing my wife does with the neighborhood ladies. Google the string "women dice loud" and BUNCO is one of the top hits. I swear, when she hosts the bunco night at our house the cackle [helped along with wine and booze] is so loud we can't hear the TV on the 2nd floor. So now the boys and I learned to clear out.

This game frightened me! There were always scary stories related to it!

There's this other contraption/game thing that I can't recall the name of.
You had this wooden base with circular slots in it. Above it were two metal rods that you manipulated in and out to make this large steel marble roll up and down then you tried to drop it into the slots. It got harder the further apart you pulled the metal arms. I think one version had planet names on it and others had numbers for points value. Oh well I haven't been able to find a pic. due to not knowing what to call the thing.

Then came computer games. Duke Nukem, Doom, Heretic, Descent, Quake, Quake II and Hexen. I gave it up for reading and enjoying the outdoors. The board games I must say would much less stressing. I will still go with Chess.

How about Risk? Now there was a saga of a game! Could take days to finish. Or how about Stratego? That was a crowd pleaser.

I loved Operation but it made me jump everytime that buzzer went off so I wasn't very good at it due to jittery hands!

I remember that thing. I have no idea what it was called. This pic is as close as I could find.

I hated seances too!

j.nc already posted me a link to Shoot the Moon and his pic was the exact same one I had. Fun to think back isn't it?

Uncle Wiggly (this one ws kinda freaky for a little kid - click to look at some of the graphics! The Skeeziks in our version looked like a mutated crow)


Chutes and Ladders: Don't hitsquare 87!!!!

I never did quite "get" Uncle Wiggly! It seemed complicated and it seems like we just skipped over several parts and made up our own rules!

I thought of a couple more remember Trouble and that plastic dome that you clicked to roll the dice? And what about Sorry?

Yeah those were old classics... Played them both many times.

This isn't a board game, but I used to love the Mattel Thing Makers... There were several themes. The one below as called "Creepy Crawlers" which was my favorite... You would squirt "goo" into a mold and bake it and presto, a rubbery thing is born!

Great memories rhertz!!! I loved those creepy crawlers. I can't tell you how many times I burnt myself baking those guys! It's amazing what toys we were allowed to play with back then.
Remember those home Chemistry sets and those wood burning tools? It's a wonder we didn't blow up or burn down the neighborhood?
