Mary Poppins Carousel

I got 'em today! They're in pretty good shape, though the board for Snow White is warped which may make it a bit of a challenge to scan.
Looking forward to starting work on Mary Poppins after I've completed Happy Days. I suspect the only part that will give me any trouble will be the final carousel spinner. Gonna have to figure the degrees closely on that one.

Crusin' for a brusin'

Happy Days Board Game

Looks like 70's Parker Brothers quality control was out of the office when they finalized the artwork for the Happy Days game board. In the spot where the Cruisin' cards are placed, they spelled it Crusin'. Don't remember that from back when I used to play this game 35 years ago.

Mad about bugs

The Mad Magazine Game

I've been squashing bugs in the Mad Magazine Board Game. I found 4 or 5 non-game-ending bugs that I've fixed recently. If you spot any yourself, please drop me a line or let me know in the comments.

By the way, that goes for the Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Crisis Board Games as well. You never know when a small bug might rear it's ugly head.

My New Holy Grail

The Cannonball Run Board Game

I just discovered the existence of this game, and now I must have it! It's based on the "Mille Bournes" card game and uses the likenesses of Burt Reynolds, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Roger Moore, Dom DeLuise, Adrienne Barbeau, and Jack Elam. JACK ELAM! How can this game NOT be awesome? I love "Mille Bournes" and I vividly remember thinking this movie wasn't entirely awful (the sequel, on the other hand, was a piece of shit). The search is on!

Mary Poppins Carousel and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Games

Mary Poppins Carousel

Just won these on eBay in a single sale. Both are extremely simplistic children's games, but that should make them relatively easy and fast to code.

Happy Days are here again!

Happy Days Board Game

I just picked up a copy of this game the other day from eBay. It came missing the die and instructions, but luckily I was able to download a copy of the instructions from BoardGameGeek.

By the way, if you've never been to BoardGameGeek and you like board games, you must check it out now and come back here later. It's okay, I'll wait.

The Mad Magazine Game is now in beta testing.

You can now head on over to the Mad Magazine page and play the full game. You may or may not encounter some game ending bugs.

Right. What's all this, then?
