Flashback- board game and vintage play!

Remember this game? If you are of a certain age you will.
I never had this, always wanted to own it, always wanted to play it at my friend's house. She was bored with it because she did own it and the novelty of wanting to own it had worn off for her. Isn't it like that with a lot of toys/games?!
I liked the commercial and thought it would have been like being a movie star to be picked to be in a commercial like that. You can watch the commercial when you click here.
Do you ever think of how modern (I use that term "modern" loosely, as the 1960's are now retro, aren't they?)day toys or other items would translate into life 100 years ago or more? I do, but maybe I am just strange that way.
So here we go with this experiment...
Maybe these pictures would be
behind the door on Mystery Date... interesting mustache, too mustachy for me
a dapper young fellow

a proud man in uniform

a little too old- and a little too whiskery- for me, and what does he do with that stick?

another fine dapper young fellow

a man about town sort of fellow

a sensible, kind-looking sort of fellow, maybe he is a romantic

What do you think? Would you open the door on the vintage board game to your date being
a dream or a dud?
All vintage photo images where found here.

I remember that game. I don't remember ever playing it though. Remember that show "The Dating Game"?

hey girl
I remember that game as well. One of the photos I find most endearing is the "man about town sort of fella". Looks like he is wearing his big brothers clothes or perhaps his Dad's. Kinda baggy on him. Still, he has a look of natural pride about him.
Happy Thanksgiving, dear one. We have much to be thankful for. I always count you in on that prayer of thanks.
Always blessed
