SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY AND GIVEAWAY!

So it is time again for show and tell over at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com. I have not participated in a few weeks so I am glad to be back. Today I would like to show you some of my favorite board games. I am crazy about board games and we have about 100 of them. I love collecting real old ones too. Today I would like to show you my bookshelf games. These games were made in the 60s and 70s. They look like a book and fit right onto a shelf. Some of these have become our favorite games to play. I think they are real neat and a great conversation piece. Sorry I do not have time to show more detailed pictures. I am late for work :)




I would also like to show you this vintage bridge scorepad. It has never been written in and the pencils look like they have never been sharpened. I do not play bridge but bought this to try and sell on ebay. I have not had any luck :(. If anyone out there loves bridge or just loves to collect vintage games just let me know that you are interested in having it and I will sent it to someone. I just do not have the heart to put it in the donate box.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love those book games, they are so cool! Which ones are your favorites? I love to play board games too, but actually haven't played that many lately. We have an old one called Hit the Beach that my boys and I loved playing. I would like to find another one like it.

Have a great weekend! Sharon

Oh those games are neat. I love books so I love the fact they look like books. I've never seen any of these.

One of my favorite games to play was "RAIL BARON"! I haven't thought about that in years! Thanks for sharing and for jogging my wee, tired brain!
