18 Childhood Board Games You Might Remember

Playing board games can still be a fun way to pass the time. Over the past few decades there have been a number of creative board games released in America centering around many various topics. These games can be challenging, some are just wild, and you can’t help but laugh. Monopoly is probably the only game we all take seriously.

I especially love the really obscure quirky board games that only a few people remember. I put together these 18 titles from games that you might remember… and some others that you won’t remember. It’s always fun looking back on childhood and reliving that small sense of nostalgia from the old days. If I missed any sweet board games feel free to drop a comment and share.

Don’t Wake Daddy

A little peculiar but still carries some fond memories. You advance by drawing cards and moving along the game board. There are obstacles which you can hit along that way that might wake up daddy, sleeping soundly in his bed. When a player wakes him up they need to go back to the start of the board(their bedroom).dont wake daddy childrens board game cover It’s not very convoluted so that even younger kids will learn how to play quickly.

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

I still remember the original TV show focused around ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ which aired on Nickelodeon. Well this board game takes players through terrifying courses where you must gain points in strength, knowledge, etc. The player who accumulates 6 points in all categories and makes it back to their campground first wins the game.

Candy Land

The Candy Land game has been around for a while and gained more popularity from the Milton Bradley re-release. Players advance by drawing cards and moving along the track to the next color. There is no required logic or decision making which means this is great for children and probably boring for grown-ups. The colors are pretty, though.

Do you remember all those fun games you played as a child? Like Sorry, Candyland, Clue or Pit? Actually, I doubt anyone remembers Pit, but well, such is life. Anyway, weren't those games fun? Didn't you enjoy spending your time in competition with your best friends, trying to outwit them and beat them to the finish line? Wasn't it great to see people get all worked up over insignificant rules and bizarre interpretations of those flimsy little sheets the game companies put in the boxes?
Wasn't that AWESOME? Didn't you love playing those?
Weren't they so great that you just wanted to keep on playing them, for the rest of your life? Super cool games like the...
