Scoop!

Post by firemansam » Mon Oct 05, 2009 12:27 pm

This was a card and board game where you had to collect stories (sport, local, headlines) and advertising to fill a newspaper front page. The most brilliant part of the game was a flat cardboard telephone, that you "dialed", by moving a small wooden handle on the dial, clockwise to the phone number, then ani-clockwise to reveal your editors' descicion about your story - including the dreaded "SCRAP IT" which often changed the course of the game.
Winner was whoever had the most valuable front page - each story having a different value printed on the back.
Many many hours of fun - and when it wasn't your turn, you had fun reading the different news stories as they were all OTT.
