Polls They Dont Make Em Like They Used To HelloGiggles Team

I’m sure at some point over the holidays whilst spending time with family and friends, the idea of a game was thrown into the mix to entertain and giggle along with.  Though the traditional board game has a lot of competition nowadays with PS3, Wii, XBox and the like, you just can’t beat the old skool retro classics, right? I used to love Simon – I remember getting the pocket version for Christmas when I was about 9 and sneaking to play it late at night under the covers so mum couldn’t hear the bleeping. Oh, I felt so naughty!  They have made a new version, but it’s just not the same.  Have you got a favourite game that reminds you of your childhood?  Which game will never be reproduced anywhere near its original classic?  Choose from some of the ideas below or tell us your own pick in the comments section.  Vote now!

  1. Clue and Trivial Pursuit.

  2. i was obsessed with my “lights out”… not too retro, but i clung to that damn thing until i was 16 and i got it the christmas they came out.

  3. I own the new Game of Life and while it’s still a great game, the photos and cards are just so different. The houses now look like warped versions of houses that don’t fit their descriptions. Give me the old house cards any day.

  4. I had one. I miss it. :[

  5. the new battleship is nowhere near as amazing as the classic.

  6. Astro Wars : )

  7. Where’s Clue? Operation?

  8. best part about girl talk was the fake “zits” you had to put on if you didn’t do a challenge

  9. I had the game CandyLand growing up. I’m a sucker for board games. I’ve never really been into gaming. But the classic old school Nitendo. You can’t beat that.

  10. ooh, not so much a game, but what about spirographs???

  11. uhmmmmm…. “SORRY!” “Scrabble” “Clue” those were really our old school family games. especially “SORRY!” being the youngest of 3 sisters there is nothing better than drawing the “sorry card” and sending a sibling back to start :D

  12. I still have Mall Madness if anyone wants to play!

  13. guess who! i hope alfred is still as creepy-looking in the newer version.

  14. simonnnnnnnnnnnnn!

  15. Polly Pockets, there’s no way she’s gonna fit in your pocket now!

  16. Monopoly is my favorite though im not sure if is a retro game?
