Another identify game request... but from a boardgamer with non-gaming wife. One night, she became very upset from me spending "hours and hours" on "that boardgame site." (What does she mean "hours and hours?" surprise )

Anyways, as a ransom for not getting upset, she asked me to identify this game from her childhood.

It's toy or game- she's unsure. It has plastic bones and dinosaur ribcage, t-rex skulls. You can pick up bones with t-rex skull and the bone will go into the ribcage. She had this game about 20 years ago.

I'll send 5gg to the first one who identifies this game correctly.

Thanks and help your fellow gamer secure his non-gaming wife.

Is it Colossal Fossil Fight?


"Colossal Fossil Fight, a rock’em sock’em robot-like game made by Gabriel in 1978. Some of the box text reads: "Titanic dinosaurs battle for supremacy in The Valley of the Bones!" The two primary colored dinosaurs must fight over fossil bones in a pit"

(from http://72.14.203.104/search?q=cache:kEFvDYP7IcYJ:collectingchannel.com/CDSDisNewsArt.asp%3Fchid%3D16%26ID%3D11479%26frm%3Dsrc+COLOSSAL+FOSSIL+fight+game&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=1)


and


GAME - BOARD - COLOSSAL FOSSIL

I have been asked to try and locate an old game called Colossal Fossil. It is a children's game made of molded plastic. The players try to get as many dinosaur fossils as possible. My guess is that the game was available in the 1960's. If you can give me any information, I will pass it along. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

GAME - BOARD - COLOSSAL FOSSIL - RESPONSE

The "COLOSSAL FOSSIL FIGHT GAME" was made by GABRIEL in 1978. It can often be found on http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=4&cam.... Hope this helps, Tina.

Thanks Bob and Todd.

Gabriel's Colossal Fossil Fight may be the one she's looking for but we can only find tiny pictures at best. (When Google and Yahoo fail to find it, I say it doesn't exist in the internet realm.)

I set an alarm for the item in EBay. It seems like it fetched $40 for NIB condition, wow.

Bob, I promise you I'll send you 5gg when my wife can make identification with a photo.
