Apparently the goal of this game is to drive a boat through thru a family game. Reminds me of Bull Poker.

When I saw this one I thought it was very odd. It seems to be a game of fighting twins and frantic quadruplets. Apparently when fighting for the throne, you must kill anyone who looks exactly like you and also happens to wear different color clothes.

It's too bad. We've mastered flight, split the atom and still we burn marshmallows to a black messy inedible mass of goop...

I especially like the guy who's warming his butt by the fire 'Dude, am I like seeing things or is that a Mastadon on the cliff?'

(Note to my prehistoric self, please don't eat the red and white spotted mushrooms...)

If you open up the image and read it the bottom edge of the box says:
"Milton Bradly makes the games little kids love the best!"

Above that and to the left is a nother label
"Warning: Choking hazard. Small parts. Not for children under 3 years"

Apparently kids under 3 are not defined as "little kids." Also it seems what little kids "love the best" is choking on small parts.

Despite the erupting volcano, the woman on the right is embarassed for having passed gas. The soldier on her left seem to grudgingly admire her efforts.

As the pyramid in question has already been built, this game is really about a large cat waiting to spring on a colourful bird.

Okay, so I've used this one before in another list and, granted, finding japanese game boxes with odd covers is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel but... c'mon! It's the Campbell's Soup Kids, Scooby-Doo and a giant robot!

It is my goal in life to enter this on every GL about strange covers. In my mind, the most bizarre cover in the history of gaming.

Some points:
1. Almost every player is wearing a different uniform.
2. The guy with the ball is actually behind the basket.
3. This must be because the basket is facing diagonally down the court.
3. The guy in the foreground, based on the positioning of the basket, must actually be coming out of the stands.
4. The guy attempting to block, although fully extended, is so far away from the shooter that you wonder if he is just stretching.

so many more...

"Jeez, I hid my ship way up here in the air and you still got it! Good shooting son. I just wish I hadn't installed that speaker in my right armpit."

Meanwhile in the background, the girls are so happy they form the world's shortest conga line, but with morris dancing.

This one makes me laugh, and I'm surprised it's not here already. The best part of this box cover is the side, where the father is looking very unhappy about his son and the son's lover. (Unfortunately, no pics of the father).
