Hi Dennis,Can you tell me how you opened up the playing surfaces on your Milton Bradley "Super Spy" Game in order to check out the internal components.My game does not work properly. The bell motor,wiring & battery contacts are Ok. All indications seem to be some type of corrosion of the internal metal disks or even the 2 sheet metal plates.I want to inspect & repair my game.Thank You Dennis.

Hi Dennis...

Do you remember a fairly sturdy horse racing game from the mid-1970's that was played within a game box area where players shot a ball or somesuch toward a hole (much like an arcade game) and your horse advanced down the straight track each time you made one as the horses were mechanically connected and moved when the ball was returned. (There were strong strings under the track connected to the horses, simple mechanical design...tons of fun as you raced the others). It took about 10-12 shots to get your horse to the end. There may have been wagering, etc. because it was more fun than what I've described here. I remember it being a name brand...I thought even Skittles racing or somesuch. I see Win, Place or Show which sounds like it, but, there is no mechanical advancing in that one. Thanks. Rob Kennedy.... Rob_Kennedy@baylor.edu

I bought a Star Wars Saga Edition Chess Set at a yard sale. Two pieces are missing. I made temporary pieces, but I would like to replace them with the original pieces. Do you know where I can get these pieces? If not, I guess I will throw away the set. Thank you.

My brothers and I loved to play Power Barons as kids. I still have our copy and amazingly all its pieces. The only thing I don't have are the rules. I don't remember all of them and would love to play again. I did check the D'antiques site but did not see this game listed. Do you have a copy of the rules you could send me, or know where I could look?

I'm looking for the name of an old board game from the 70's. Early 70's I think. All I remember is it had cards with cartoonish people on it. Any ideas?

I own a copy of Bazaar, but have no score sheets. The rules are inside the cover, but refer to the score sheets for scoring values. Can you help with a picture of a score sheet? thank-you, Duncan

Wonderful site. My dad had a few of these when I was growing up: Twixt, Feudal, and Breakthru. I'm trying to start a collection myself. This gives me a good place to start.

Check the list of on-line sellers at the top of this page or the "Links" link in the left sidebar for a list of places where you can find older games.

Where can I find the board game by 3M TRYCE.

I have heard of the version of Wide World with the plastic overlay but have never seen one myself. You might check with the sites linked above; I know D'Antiques has a large selection of game rules on-line and the person behind Games Gone By has written several books on vintage games; they may have or know of a source for the rules.

Do you have a rule of Wide World Travel GAme from Parker Bros. I have game with plastic weather. Do you have rule of the edition board with overlay (weather in plastic move during the game). The first edition did not have this weather.
Thank you
