Lexicon by Waddingtons of Leeds

I never really liked this game but was forced to play it nevertheless. The object of the game was to get rid of your cards as soon as possible. As soon as this happened the remaining players has to tally up their points. the first person to 100 was eliminated from the game. Hence with 4 players this could go on for quite some time. The set I have dates from 1977 and was made by Waddingtons of Leeds

Tri-it! by Spear's Games

This game was one of those tactical games made for only two players which meant if your sister did not want to play, you were buggered. At least with some other board games there was a solitaire playing mode. Still it was something to open and forget about on Christmas day. This one was made in the early 1980s by Spear's Games.

Tri-it! by Spear's Games

The object of the game was to be the first to triangle a number by landing 3 playing pieces of the same colour on the three corner points around that number - confused, so was I especially when only 7 years old. The winner of the game was the first player to attain a total of ten points.

Yes - received this one as well for Christmas. I forget the year but this game was made around 1964 so it has been around for quite sometime.

Sorry! by Waddingtons of Leeds

Good game from one of the best board game makers ever. Easy rules - be the first player to get all four pawns from the original base circle, go around the board and return to base. Simple, fast...brilliant. Amused me for an hour or so if "White Horses" were not on the television. Likewise today with my children. I still wonder, though, what the kids of the front of the box are doing today. Pity the BBC or ITV do not do a program on it as I'm sure it would be fascinating.
