Back in the day, I was tagging along one afternoon as my Mom was running some errands. She decided that we would drop by a local toy store. She spied "Alfred Hitchcock's WHY?" game and picked it up. Then she looked down at me and asked me if I wanted it (!?). I still have the game board and some of the pieces...

No Godzilla, King Kong or Weird-Ohs games either. The site seems to be a list of only those board games that had been offered for sale on the site in the past.

 :-\

Still an interesting resource.

The list looked bewilderingly large to me...I wouldn't have any idea which board games are missing! (And I only browsed through the 1980s section!).

Also have this Creature Features Game from Athol Research, 1975.  Plays like Monopoly.  Instead of real estate, you try to gain control of as many horror movie properties as possible.





The game uses these cards:




I just picked up one of these from a friend at a local toy show this past weekend. The colors had me hooked. I still have to go through it but I think it's complete.

I also picked up an Escape From Frankenstein game at this same show last year.

That Creature Features board is really pretty.

I've seen some collectors frame theirs - when all the cards and pieces are lost or damaged.

Makes a nice wall hanging.

In the last 4 years I bought a Scooby Doo game.  There are moving parts to booby traps.  Quite fun to play.

Here are three extremely comprehensive books on board games by super collector Desi Scarpone:







The purple one at the bottom is more commonly found with a green jacket and is merely the revised Edition of the top blue book. I have the top two books and they are indeed drool worthy.

Here are a couple of pictures from Scarpone's collection of over 6000 board games:





Here's his website:
