Almost forgot this one:

1960:  THE MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT - One player is Nixon, the other is Kennedy and you campaign against each other to control the most electoral votes.  The game is driven by cards representing actual events that did or could have affected the campaign (such as Kennedy's Catholicism, Nixon's five o'clock shadow, and racial issues).  You try to play the cards to your best advantage to sway voters or influence the media.  There's also a debate where you could win (or lose) important votes.  This is an excellent game for 2 people, and also somewhat educational.

Stock Ticker. I used to have this when I was a kid. All you do is buy and sell six commodities, with price fluctuations determined by rolling three dice. Shares start at a buck and split if they reach two bucks. Pretty clever, but also kind of a weird way to have hours of fun. Looks like it was dirt-cheap to manufacture, doesn't it?

Yeah, but you could probably sell it on eBay for about $100 because it's out of print now!

Snits revenge!  I don't think I ever played by the rules but the instructions, concept, and game pieces were awesome!

Here is a picture of my brother and his friend as we play a game of Arkham Horror. The game took about 45 minutes to set up and 3 hours to play. Great times!

(Yes, we did manage to vanquish Ithaqua. Thank you, holy shotgun.)

Last night was the first time we talked somebody else into playing it. It's usually just my brother and me playing two characters apiece.

That game is great!

We're using the Dunwich Horror, a present I bought my brother for his recent birthday.

We had a creepy but cool board game in the late 70s called "Superstition".  IIRC there were gallows, guillotines (without blades in them, duh), and other instruments of death on the path.  I don't remember much else about the game but it sure was cool.  Also we had "STOP THIEF!" which was kinda strange with its big scanner that gave you clues as to the thief's whereabouts, with sound effects of glass breaking (entering a window), a door opening (going into/leaving a building entrance), and a button that would send the cops to the spot you think the thief is at.  But it was pretty fun.

My cousin had that game.  I remember playing it with him endlessly after he got it for Christmas.

I just have the base game.  No expansions yet.  Does the Dunwich Horror expansion add a lot to the game play to make it worth buying?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
