If I remember right you get two men and you get to try to visit all the town spots before Bigfoot comes and steps on you.  The last player to survive wins.  If Bigfoot steps on you and the token is blank, you survived.  If there is a foot print your are squashed!  It was pretty cool.   
Long live the UMA!

Never really cared to play board games (still don't, much to my wife's frustration -- she loves 'em) -- but have collected quite a few based on my other collecting interests (comic strip characters, mostly)  -- Terry and the Pirates, Steve Canyon, Prince Valiant, Li'l Abner, Eddie Cantor's "Tell it to the Judge."  But I have 'em for the graphics, not for play.

I did have a Captain America board game as a kid -- wish I still had that one.  I remember that it was supposed to come with a free comic book -- but mine was missing the comic.

Just remembered one that I used to love playing, but haven't been able to find since:

Escape From New York.

I vaguely remember much of it but Snake Plissken was the coolest dude to a 9 year old. In fact he still is!

Doc, that's it!

It wasn't an RPG but it was made by TSR. They also made a wargame called "Onslaught!" which was very cool.

Check out Boardgamegeek.com and you will see pics of the game. Simple board and graphics with dice and cards. Haven't been able to find it eBay though.

I just won the Monster Madness board game on Ebay for five dollars.  Has two cards missing but everything else is there and the seller said it shouldn't affect the game play.  Hope he is right.
