There was time, from around 1960 through the 80's when it was very common to put a photo of people playing the game on the box cover. Today many of these box cover photos look pretty ridiculous, whether it's the excessively formal attire, the dismal facial expressions, or just inexplicably atrocious layout.
Rules for the list:
1. Box design must feature photography. If you want to make fun of bad illustration or other graphic design make your own list.
2. No movie/TV tie-ins. As hilarious as the Fonzie and Beverly Hillbillies games are, they don't really belong here.
3. Don't let the game speak for itself. If you post a game you must make some kind of smart-alecky comment.
