This is the one for me, along with mystic wood but this was first when I wa 7 or so.. Took years to track this down until it showed up on eBay recently, and now I have 2, one keeper and one playing copy the kids can trash. So rare that I had to add it to big after I got it, which is odd for a dc game with the World's Finest in it. It"s currently for sale in an online store in the US for $400, but I don"t think I would sell it knowing how many years it took me to track it down.
Still, I don"t think my last words on my deathbed will be "comic action heroes game".*
* kids, this is a reference to citizen Kane, the greatest film there has ever been, as is the title of this geek list. If you've seen all the transformers films but not citizen Kane, then shame on you.
Got this when I was eleven. My first of many wargames. My first of many games by Avalon Hill. I still have it, but I don't think I've broken it out in 30-odd years. Nevertheless, I don't think I'd ever get rid of it.
What was the best site on the internet is now painful to read due to changing color #F5F5FF to all white. So I only check here briefly now. So it goes.
I'm sorry, I cannot read this site regularly while the intense white background is in effect. I have eye health issues, and this is painful. I'll still make brief visits, largely for trades and rules questions, but my socializing here is done for now
This, clearly. My mother cleaned out the game closet when I was in college, but I managed to replace this in my 50s. I've since played it, yes, though not often.
A simple and random luckfest, but the theme and components are possibly the coolest thing since antibiotics. I still break it out to show it off, and it still blows young minds 25 years after it's release.
My parents weren't cool enough to buy me HeroQuest back in the day so I didn't get this super early. The 1st play was around 13 and I didn't get my own copy until I was around 17, but at the age of 29 and 16 years from the start I still break this out at least once a year and play it. It is everything I could want in a dungeon crawl.
We had a lot of boardgames as kids, and I seem to remember my parents bringing this one back from a trip to England.
Mostly a roll and move, but as you go around you collect fictional movie stars and starlets, line them up with scripts, enough locations and make movies. Specific stars lined up with a specific genre net you more money each time you "pass GO".
I found another copy some years ago, and had great fun with it, but hold onto my copy for nostalgic purposes only.
Simple roll and move affair where the players are traveling salesmen hawking candy, ice cream, soda pop, and toys. My brother and sister and I loved this charming game way back when, playing it often. I'd love to have it still, but doubt I'd play it much if at all.
This game made us have so much fun days and evenings when I was younger. I will have to buy the Ikusa version sooner or later, because A) my brother has the Shogun version and B) too much miniatures in it have been repaired and look uglier now. I am sure the fun will continue with this one in the future, the existence of newer games doesn't make this one worse.

This is a fairly poor game -- if I'm honest -- but I've always liked the theme of traveling the world and having adventures in far-flung cities. I still love it somehow, and it's always been a dream of mine to re-design the game into something much better.
