Irish board games we've known and loved

Do you remember Sean Kelly’s cycling board game? Escape from Atlantis? Blackboard Jungle? They’re all here.

IT’S SUNDAY, SO as soon as you’ve digested that roast why not get out the board games and have a friendly tournament?

DISCLAIMER: If you play Monopoly, it will end in a fight.

We’ve rounded up as many truly Irish retro board games as possible (although the search for photographic evidence of the existence of Play the Game and Where in the World continues) and added in a few more classics for good measure.

If you have any gems lying around at home send us a snap to tips@dailyedge.ie or tweet us @DailyEdge.
