New TV Season, Same Old Games

September 17, 2013

Before video games, there were board games. Sure, board games are still around, but unless you are Amish you probably don’t play them. But back in “the day” (what day? I dunno) there were board games based on TV shows, and here I present 2 dozen of them from the thrilling day of yesteryear.

Ahh, the wholesome Waltons. What a boring game this must have been, “Say goodnight, John Boy. Move back 2 spaces.”

Meh. I was always more of a Goober fan.

ALF! Everyone loves ALF! Go ahead and laugh, you loved him the 80’s.

“I rolled a 6. I have to clean up after the bird.”

The wackiness of war, right in your own home! Help Klinger find a cocktail dress! Search for Hawkeye’s lost tuxedo! Perform a blood transfusion on a wounded North Korean prisoner of war! Die in a mortar attack!

I don’t know if this is based on the movie or the TV show, but in what version did that little ape kid star? None of them.

Back Camera

Going way back with this one. This might be one of the only games on this list that actually lends itself to a board game.

“Color Photo of B.A. Inside!”  YES! I have to have a color photo of Mr. T to round out my Foes of Hulk Hogan Collection!

What? What? An All in the Family game? What do you do to win? I think this game makes us all losers.

I’d have bought time one if I saw it.

Any game where you can play as Sorrell Booke is OK in my book.

Ah yes, the classic concentration camp game. Tasteless.

No. Just no.

Being a huge Dark Shadows fan I’d play this. Ghosts, coffins, vampires, witches, what is there not to love?

I had this one.

I wish I owned this one. Imagine- all the action of your favorite, dynamic tv show! “One more thing- can I borrow a shoelace? Lose a turn.”

AAAAAAYYYYYY! Stick The Fonz’s face on anything and it will sell, even if it is a goofy cartoon picture like this.

Not a TV-based game, but in my never-ending quest to present all things Superman I had to include it, Plus the box is just awful. imagesCAZNDRS0

I had this one too. I was actually called (check if you don’t believe me) the “up your nose with a rubber hose game” and it came with a short piece of rubber hose. For real.

Didn’t have this, but I had the Mork action figure, which came in an interstellar egg, and the talking Mork doll. Pull the string on his back and he says “nanu nanu.”

Bet this goes for big bucks now.

I have never seen this show.

From across the ocean comes this British game where old men fight Nazis. Keep it classy England.

This is the box they went with? They stuck a small picture of Telly Savalas in the corner because they just had to have the image of the munchkin in the funny hat on the cover? Why?
