“My Dad at an underground club in Berlin, 1988.”
Board games are supposed to foster fun and togetherness with friends and family. But not all of them can be winners. Thanks to our friends at Flashbak, we can enjoy some of the lesser-known board games from the 70’s and 80’s. Thank goodness for Netflix.
More from our friends at Flashbak. The 70’s and 80’s was a Golden Age for all-girl pop groups. But for every The Runaways or The Go-Go’s, there were a hundred Bene Bene Bene’s–obscure knockoffs, unknown outside of Europe. Let’s take a look at 30 of these undiscovered disco dollies and new-wave foxes in no particular order.
“We were obviously failing at Pinterest before Pinterest was even around. This picture is from 1989 and unfortunately seems to depict me, the oldest daughter, ‘birthing’ half the family while our mom is still making her way to the top of the steps. We have no recollection of who took this picture or what look we were really going for, but obviously no photographer could salvage this ‘pose,’ and no inspiration is a good inspiration when it turns out like this.
Our family refers to our childhood favorites like TV shows and movies ‘PFFs,’ or Privett Family Faves, so it’s only right that this be called a Privett Family Fail.”

“This is a photo of my cousin and I wearing the horrible cat sweaters our Grandma knit us every Christmas. You can see the enthusiasm radiating from our faces when we were forced to model them for the rest of the family. If an angry cat head sweater doesn’t say Merry Christmas, I don’t know what does.”

“This was a photo from the 1970s of my parents, aunts, uncles, and little sister. All wearing flannel, all looking off to the side except for one of us.”

“I don’t know what’s more awkward–how much I look like a boy, my Mom’s giant glasses, or Dad’s hideous sweater.”
