Vintage game boards. I grew up playing games with my family. My favorite game as a kid was Pig in the Garden where you fed a pig vegetables. I did a post on my game boards quite awhile ago, but my collection has grown and it needs to be officially included in Collection Challenge.
I often find just the game board and no playing pieces or box. I like the boards because of the graphics
Branded. Dated 1966.
I have two versions of Uncle Wiggly Game.
This version is dated 1954. I believe the game board above is earlier, but is not dated.
The boards are very similar, but the images have been updated over time. Here are two images of the Bad Pipsisewah.
Another favorite game board is Pirate's Island
Supercar To The Rescue. Dated 1962.Casper The Friendly Ghost. Dated 1959.
Chutes and Ladders.
I have always meant to do a project with the boards, but have yet to do so. I like the way when they are all laid out they look like a big patchwork quilt.
If you have an idea for a future collection challenge, leave me a comment and finish the sentence "Show me your collection of ___." Did you notice this was my 150th collection challenge? I have diligently posted every week for 150 weeks. I am taking a break next week. I leave for Round Top on Monday and am taking a little collection challenge vacation while I look for vintage goodies in Texas. Who knows I may start a whole new collection on my trip!
