I uploaded a photo taken in 1969. Someone tagged it "vintage," which is appropriate. It got me thinking about older photos in BGG game galleries. When I searched the tag "vintage," only a few images came up, and only a very few appear to be truly older photos.

Please add to this list any photo taken before 1980 (an arbitrary date I selected) that is currently in a game gallery. Any additional information you wish to add about it would be of interest.

(Photo taken 1969, Irving TX) Before we had children, my wife and I had a cat named Misty, and we lived in Irving, Texas. My wife wasn't too enthused about playing Monopoly (one of the few board games we owned at that time), so I occasionally played a game solitaire (dubious fun at best). One day, when doing this, Misty became curious about the board and tokens and decided to move some of them herself. My wife had gotten out the camera to take a photo of Misty and me, and the cat happened to be moving a token just as the camera was ready. This photo is the result.

This is not my photo but it definitely is vintage. One of the photos that came to mind when I read the heading.

While we are visiting the past, here is a "vintage" photo of me (sans beard) playing the same guy I was playing in the above photo of Broadsides. This was about 1990 or so.

Note: more mass quantities of beer being consumed!

And finally, here I am playing the same guy again, this time we have moved up to a more difficult game! I am sure this was about 1989.

And I am sure we were both either drunk or, er, something else.

I almost forgot this one- it was taken about 1990, and with the same guy as was seen in most of the above photos- my gaming buddy of the late 80's, early 90's.

Here we are seen having a rip-roaring good time playing swords and...

...drinking more beer.
