    Who remembers the old 1965 Milton Bradley "Mystery Date Game"?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmZE5bCK5QY

    I being male, I would not have touched it except for its nostalgic values. The game was marketed for girls aged 6-14, and the so-called mystery date could either be a dream or a dud.

    The game was reissued with different box art in 1970. But what would the late-'70s/early-'80s box art look like???

    Believe it or not, there actually was a masculine version for guys like me (and you, and him, and him...), but it failed to catch on. It was, appropriately, called "All-Male Mystery Date Game."

    "Yes shopkeep, one All-Male Mystery Date game please..."

    OMG, that's the absolutely WORST NAME EVER for a board game.lol

    Seriously, if they called it "Hot Date" or "How to Get Laid," it would've sold so much better
