Dynamite Shack (Milton Bradley, 1968)
This vintage game from Milton Bradley is definitely a board game that would never be on the market today. The objective of this game is to put (plastic) sticks of “dynamite” into a shack before the roof blows off. The trick is you have to wear oversized plastic thumbs while doing so. The game was intended for children seven and older and includes a deck of cards to determine how many sticks you have to send down the smoke hole on your turn. The game doesn’t take batteries, but you do have to wind up the shack. When it winds down, the roof comes off the shack. The dynamite stacks come in three colors — red, green and blue. Though the game is quite loud, it is perfectly safe and quite a lot of fun.
