Games your Granpappy used to play.

(And yes, I am sure that this type of list has been done before. It is absolutely unneccessary to inform me of this. It is funny in relation and proximity to the other 'decade'-type list recently posted and only works (for me, at least) in this context. I apologize in advance if I am violating some unwritten BGG policy on unwittingly revisiting a previously submitted topic without referencing/linking/financially compensating the origin post/poster)

The perfect ratings posted can only mean one thing: Grampa Widderich was a Tuppi fan.

What with a Great Depression and all, they learned to stretch a deck of cards a looooong way.

I believe this was the pre-cursor for the 18-- railroad games. It's a stock-market-y kind of thing.

This is the pre-cursor to Milles Bourne. My guess is that its worth a bundle on E-Bay.

A little known game from the turn of the century. A passing fad, this game failed to produce thousands of cheap product-tie-in versions and quietly faded into obscurity.

This one raised a big controversy at the time on www.stratfordgeek.com when the designer was accused of stealing the game from an idea by Christopher Marlow. (note: the link goes nowhere. it is used in a satirical manner in the hopes of generating a cheap laugh amongst english majors)

I have absolutely nothing witty to say about this game. (I should have quit before the last one).

HONORABLE MENTION

I could make an 'Original German Game' crack, but I won't (crap I just did). Actually, the swastika was a happy-go-lucky Indian symbol before someone co-opted it. Posted only for interest's sake (please don't flame me, i love germans, really i do).
