In the 1930’s through the 1950’s a radio show by the name of Fibber McGee and Molly ruled the airwaves. In 1940 Milton Bradley tried to make a board game based on the comedy. While the “Mad Lib” story mechanic can provide some laughs, the game is otherwise sorely lacking.
Are you ready for some Pig Pong? No not Ping Pong but Pig Pong. Pig Pong is a 1986 game created by Milton Bradley where players use a pig in order to blow air to push the ball onto the other side of the net. Pig Pong may be a children’s game but is is surprisingly more enjoyable for adults than you would expect.
Ready! Set! Spaghetti! In this 1989 Milton Bradley game you try to roll up your spaghetti before your competitors. While Ready! Set! Spaghetti should appeal to children, the game relies too heavily on luck to be very entertaining for adults.
Are you sick of the traditional roll and move games? In 1989 Milton Bradley tried to revolutionize the roll and move genre with This Game is Bonkers. In This Game is Bonkers players play cards on the board which alter how players move around the gameboard. This Game is Bonkers tried to be innovative, but its’ new ideas for the most part fall flat.
Cardino is a light to moderate strategy game created by Milton Bradley in 1970. After having picked it up for cheap from a rummage sale/thrift store, I didn’t have high expectations. As it turns out I was pleasantly surprised by the game.
Did you know that the comedian Rodney Dangerfield had his own board game? Until I ran into the game at a local thrift shop, I didn’t. With a title like No Respect you wouldn’t expect much out of the game and due to a heavy reliance on luck No Respect fails to be anything more than mediocre.
