This time around, in keeping with the recent Zaxxon flavour of my blog, I present the Zaxxon board game. I had this when I was a kid, but over the years I lost bits of it and eventually it became an unused prisoner of the games cupboard. I've no idea what became of it – I assume my mother piffed it when I moved out of home – but every now and then the thought of it would pop into my adult brain with a tingle of nostalgia (the same goes for my Donkey Kong and Pac-Man board games which I keep meaning to track down).
A few years back, I bumped into the opportunity to buy the Zaxxon board game again (not the exact one I used to own, obviously). Before the part of my brain that makes good decisions could stop the part of my brain in charge of my mouse-clicking finger, Milton Bradley's Zaxxon was mine. I haven't once played with it since the purchase, and fully expect that I never will, but for me it's a nice convergence of childhood memory and silly-but-cool collectible.
