Snoopy, Come Home
Yeah, Snoopy, Come Home! Based on the movie of the same name, this is a board game from the early seventies. We saw it at the Schulz Museum, and Nyra mentioned how much she liked it when she was a girl, so I found a copy and gave it to her for Christmas. It's an interesting game. It has two phases -- first the players race to Snoopy, and when a player reaches him, then the game changes, and players try to steal Snoopy from each other on a race back to the start. It has a very unusual board structure -- it's overall very novel, with a lot of racing and chasing, and surprising reversals. It is more competitive than you would expect from the theme.
