    Ah!! Those Were The Days. Skint Knees, Jumpers for Goalposts !!!

    I was having a chat at work today with some off the guys, and we got a bit nostalgic for some off the old board games we owned.
    A few of the young lads didn't have a clue what we were talking about, having never heard off any of them.

    So I thought I would stick a thread up and see if it jogs anybody elses memorys.

    I used to love all these games, Crossfire was awesome until you lost the main ball for the centre then it turned into a steel ballbearing rifle to shoot at each other.
    ScrewballScramble was great fun too, unfortunatley it was as noisy as a jackhammer, I bet parents never realised that when they first bought it, Listening to that for hours on Christmas day.
    Downfall was a bit more strategic and soo sooo sooooo frustrating.

    Kids these days, don't know their born !!!!

    if I remember correctly it was " Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots " or at least that was the version I had.
    Also does anyone remember Mastermind, where you had to guess the four coloured pegs your mate chose, a bit more cerebral than the usual games, also Hungry Hungry Hippos. Awesome.

    You played them when you were bored, hence its a board game.
    Trivial pursuit anyone???

    I was traumatised by buckaroo! Used to scare the life out of me when it went off!

    I have fond memories of tin can alley and big trax with the dumper add on - although saying that we used to have a budgie that used to knock the cans off tin can alley before i could shoot them off - the same budgie used to ride on big trax and poop on it too

    Ker Plunk was an old fave of ours, we had the original Monopoly, but never really got to play it as we always ended up fighting over who was going to be the car!!!

    Anyone remember Super Cup Football??

    Super Cup Football was the bomb. Until you pinged the ball off the board and tried to find it!!!

    yes mate! i can! i was one that did this lol!
    tear a big strip off and just hit and hit and hit! lol! many times it did not work as the cap was destroyed by the brick!
    a really bad ratio of bangs per roll! lol
    can anybody remember devil bangers? like rizla papers twisted to form a little package full of gun powder or something that you used to throw and explode with a bang?
    probably banned now though!
    oh the good old days!

    ***edit! they do exist, but called 'fun snaps' now! how odd! ***

    i remember the Jaws variant of Buckaroo they brought out. i used to have a couple "Stock Car Smash Up" cars too - had a big wheel in the middle that you threaded a toothed cord into and yanked to make spin, and you'd fire the cars at each other or a wall - they had button type things that when hit would pop a door off etc.

    had some matchbox tracks too, build loop-the-loops from the table to the ground and race the cars down. best game i had i think was War of the Daleks :-D

    edit, had a few guns that used the caps - i remember there were rolls in grey and green boxes. also had a revolver where the caps were little plastic cups made into a ring so it revolved properly etc. also had one of those small black spud guns, where you'd press the barrel into a spud to make a pellet. guy up the street had an air gun thing, can't recall the name but it just literally fired air at a safari target made of hanging strips that fluttered when hit.
    used to like the diecast toys like the UFO ones that would fire a rocket etc. there was an Enterprise that fired pastic photon torpedoes by turning a thing on the top.

    Penny racers! They were cool!

    little cars that you used to put a penny in the back as ballast to make them wheelie when you pulled them back and let go!

    Devil bangers were ace! Me and my mate once took a whole box and slowly unwrapped them into a huge container to make a big one. Towards the end it accidently blew up in our faces, our ears were ringing for ages after that! Ha.

    Penny racers were wicked too. I love the old days.

    lol @ spokey dokeys!
    my mate was a bit spoilt and his raleigh extra burner had loads of them on!
    i had skyway tuff two's so could not 'rock them! lol
    can you remember them motorbike sounding grip things you used to get?
    like a grip that would rev like a motor bike and had like a box speaker on it that would emit the "broom broom" sound!
    i never had one, i used to use a lolly stick pushed through my brake calliper onto my tyre lol for continuous motor bike noises!

    Theres nothing wrong with a lolly stick or a crushed coke can jammed in your wheel for a realistic motorbike noise!!

    The thing that got my juices flowing "back in the day", right around the time Street Hawk was cool, was this bad boy.
