The 1975 version is what I had, really fun. Spent lots of time with this one. Fun with friends or alone.

Mostly played this by just putting it together and setting it off, not really playing the game by the rules. Still, was fun to me.

My friend and I used to play this all the time. If my memory serves me right, we always used to break the strings used to pull the mines that "blew up" the tanks.

Didn't like this one at first, but after I learned how to play it I began to enjoy it more and more. Amazingly, by the time I learned the game most of the choppers were still intact.

What can I say about this one. Many, many hours spent going around the board. Good memories.

I remember having some fun with this one. Used to jump off my seat when the jaws would snap shut.

I thought I was so sophisticated having this in my closet. Too bad I couldn't get anybody to play it with me so I just played it by myself.

Another one of those games that sat in my closet, but I never actually played. Just read the rules.

Sat for hours day dreaming while staring at the map. I finally broke down and played it alone as best I could because I couldn't get anybody else to play it with me.

This was another good solo game. It would have been a cool two player game had I convinced my friends to play, but well, once I figured it out it was very fun. Good for imagination.
