Boardgame Nostalgia

From the Enoggera and Districts Historical Society

Boardgames are a great chance for the family to bond. Here are some youngsters enjoying Poleconomy

With current COVID-19 restrictions in place, and the community needing to stay indoors much of the time, who else out there is reaching for a good old-fashioned  boardgame?

It is a great  opportunity to bond with the family and in the process bring back some lovely memories of years gone by!

There’s a few well known staples we all know and love, and indeed grew up with – such as Monopoly, Scrabble and Cluedo.

However, who out there also remembers Risk, Squatter, The Game of Life, Pay Day or Poleconomy (being played above)?

What about Rum Rebellion, Test match, Scotland Yard, Lose Your Shirt, Buccaneers or Park and Shop?

The Enoggera and Districts Historical Society would love to hear people’s memories of playing boardgames indoors from years gone by. Visit our Facebook page and post a photo of a game (if you still have it!) and write a comment about what made the experience so special.

Please remember, while the society has had to postpone a number of activities for the foreseeable future, you can still stay in touch by emailing or visiting our website 

Take care everyone,

Andrew McMicking,
