vampire games, vampire news, and real vampires

Bored Games? Hell, No!

I have a friend who hates puns. Like, despises them. Which of course means that I will assault her with one every chance I get. The title of this article, then, is for you, Tina. Smooches.

No, I’m talking about BOARD games. They still make them, right? I know they still make the classics. Candyland. Mousetrap. Clue. I see them in the stores. Do they still make board games of pert-near every pop culture franchise, though, like they used to do when I was a kid? I had the The Six Million Dollar Man board game, and the Frogger and Pac-Man board games, and a The Monster Squad board game, and Wheel of Fortune, and WWF Wrestling Stars. I even had the Jaws game, although it was more like Operation than a standard board game. All the latter are basically the same; they’re counting games. Great for kids, but adults tend to find them kinda dull.

This nifty article from the fine folks over at, one of my personal favorite websites, offers a retrospective of Horror-related board games from yesteryear. I’d never heard of any of them, as they were all a bit before my time. If they were re-released today, though, I’d buy ‘em, just because they look so cool. (How did I miss the ALIEN game?!) One classic game of yesteryear is missing from the list, though: the official DARK SHADOWS board game! THAT is the one I most want to see make a comeback!
