Last April I linked to a slew of retro game commercials.
For no particular reason, here are a few more that I happened to come across on Youtube. I'm really not looking for them; I fear I should find way too many more if I did.
Allan Sherman's Camp Granada Board Game - I would ask "What was he thinking?", but for Allan Sherman, that would not be a relevant question.
E.T. The Board Game - Cool bits.
Splat - How to make roll and move games more fun: let players squash their opponents' clay pieces.
Let's add to this one of many fake commercials for made up board games. Most are stupid. This one for a game called Stop and Wait is pretty funny.
Our last video is a serious amateur video short about good versus evil using the game of Abalone as it's main prop.
There are a number of vintage game sites on the web: Timewarp, Boardgames R Us, Alvin's, Darwin's, D'antiques, Kidd's, The Board Game Co., Games Gone By, and Vintage Board Games, to name a few. I like Nostalgia Game's site, and I can't help but notice on the "Double pack of Royal Visit to Nigeria" cards a familiar symbol (Jewish star) and I wonder how it got there.
