    Hahaha Mark, it's funny, the adverts always made it look really impressive and exciting as well! You know what I did like though and it's just popped into my head? Operation

    I normally put together the Mousetrap while I play along, using the Add A Piece spaces.

    The rules stated that if the trap failed to work the mouse on the Cheese square could escape to the Safe Place & the game would continue.

    The London Taxi board game has to be mine though I played it so long ago I forget the rules

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Agree about Mousetrap...a lot of effort for very little reward. Never and I mean never did that little plastic man land in the pool for me.

    Haunted House was great fun but I don't remember the ball thingy being a skull in the one I had.

    There were two that a friend had that I wanted: Blast-Off! (a space game where you had to get your spaceship into orbit and eventually land on the moon, and Spy Ring--complicated if I remember correctly. The pieces were busts of spies in different coloured plastic and you stuck a metal stick into their hat when they were transmitting a message.
