I think that back in the day, the "Old Guy and his Girlfriend" motif must have been a good way to market boardgames. What old geezer wouldn't be excited by the prospect of getting some attractive girlfriend by buying a game at the local toy store?

(I am sure there are more games with covers like this, so help me find them! Go, my minions! Scour the earth to find them!)

Playing Skirrid not only gets you gypsy girlfriends, but also takes you closer to becoming an evil supervillain, by the looks of things.

I explained my "mistress to the big stock broker" theory in my review of the game. I feel she's moving on to younger territory (though not as young as the fellow on the floor would like).

Maybe not old enough, but one wonders why he's so unconcerned with second-hand smoke... or so unconcerned with the fact that the game has been won four times already and is about to be won two more ways...

As a attorney, it's my mission in life to see that this game shows up on as many Geeklists as possible ... This gesticulating lawyer is not so old on the outside, but, inside, he clearly has the soul of 75 year-old curmudgeon. As a result, this jaw-dropping chrono-hybrid is stunningly attractive not only to the sexy, green-clad witness but also to the old broad in the jury box who is slowly sliding back out of menopause as he points and points and points ...

I just saw this game on another thread.

This cover is so awesome I can hardly stand it.

Here's a recent game--originally published in Japan--with a throwback cover that seems to qualify for this list.
