Hi everyone! new to the site. so i remember palying this board game with my family when i was younger (born in '82 and probably played game at age 4-6) anyways the game was geared towards safety and i can rememeber my dad asking me a question about this scenario (a man pulls up next to you in a car and offers you a ride, what should you do?) and i remember having figures for the board but they were flat like they were made out of cardboard and you placed them in this smaller piece that had a slot in it, and they had a policeman and i think a nurse?? sorry this is soo vague but its all that i remember. and i thought the name of the game was "safety place" or "safety game" or "safety town"?? thank you for taking time to read my post. and thanks for your help.

Hi Brad,

Did you try using the search box at the top of the page (I ask because maybe you already know the game isn't in the database)? There's a couple games that might fit your description:

Safety First

or maybe

Safetyville


They don't list the years they were published, so it's hard to tell...

thanks jim. yeah i already tried the search box and found a list of games but none of them were the one i remember. the safety first game that you posted sounded and looked VERY similar, and it may be the same game only newer, because the game i remember wasnt that new and didnt look like that. and the "safety first" from the 30's did sound like either one. i was just wondering if anyone might have remembered the game from their childhood or something. thanks again

Ok...I figured, but I had to ask. It's not often that people get stumped around here on these types of questions, but I have a feeling this one will be difficult.

It could be Don't Talk to Strangers, although I don't recall (flat) figures.
