Inspired by the thread http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/91518 about DVD games. There was quite some comparison drawn between DVD games and their VCR-based predecessors. The general concensus was that the VCR games were of mediocre quality at best, and left to a fate of obscurity and thrift store fare.

Having played one or two VCR games in the past, I looked for a Geeklist about VCR games, only to find none. This list fills that void. Please feel free to add to it.

And don't forget, Betamax counts, too!

(I've been trying to include images that show the tape itself.)

Surprised this was off the list.

There's no description on how the game is played.

That domino-like lineup is the many tapes for this game. Another offering from Andrea Angiolino, of "wings of War" fame.

"Goal: Win the hockey game. Players move around the board drawing cards and doing what is says on the space. If you land on "VIDEO ATTACK" you go to the VCR to see what happens. It shows a great play from a game in the past. Either a goal or a save. If you see a goal you score a point."
