This is a list of the bad, the worse, and the ugly, games I had when I was a nipper in the 70's.

I've put this one at the top of the list not because it was any good (I used it more as a noisy toy), but because I was searching for this when I first found the 'Geek. It was that important.

I had several versions of this (see below). Thought it was great at the time, was horrified to learn it was completely solveable in four moves.

The pocket version. I loved pocket versions of anything, I had pocket scrabble, pocket othello, and loads of pocketeers (small plastic pinball games). Can you get pocket Twilight Imperium yet?

Too many code possibilities to be a decent game, used the plastic letters to write rude messages on my wall.

Didn't actually own this, but a neighbour had it and we'd play it a lot, using the wrong rules of course, because it was more 'grown up' than Frustration. Instead of buying a copy my mum decided she'd make one, spent ages painting an intricately detailed board, and then never figured out a way of producing the money, so that was that.

The only strategy game I had, thought it was pretty good at the time after playing someone elses copy, then got my own. The only game I wish I knew where it was now (that I haven't still got that is).

Bought this on impulse because it had cardboard bits I thought it must be a strategy game (and I desperately wanted a hex-and-counter game since watching one being played at the traditional last-day-of-term game day at school). It wasn't. Still, it was 'jolly' fun in any case. Still have it.

Had loads of these, virtually all to do with cars (including the set pictured). Should still have these somewhere so I'll have to dig them out upload some pictures of the missing sets.

Got this one christmas, then my parents refused to play it because it involved 'lying' (the were a bit puritan). So never got played, now turned into San Juan and St Petersburg card decks.

Got this after all the hype on TV about it being 'game of the year' or something. Still have it, still unplayed.
