Thought it might be fun to explore what is out there in this catagory. I don't mean new stuff which was designed for the exhibit giftshops, but relatively old stuff from the 40's-70's. Of course this could evolve into a bigger thread. I have a couple of gameboard games, IDEAL made The Sinking of the Titanic in the late 50's. It has a liner sinking the wrong end with red-tipped grey funnels and lifeboats in the foreground on the boxtop. Back in the 80's of course the Raise the Titanic game came out with that funny gold pop-up-on-a spring ship. Probably one of the most tasteless things I have is the Titanic Soap on a rope-guaranteed to sink written on the box( no, I did not buy it myself- it was a gift). Also got a belt-buckle with Bon Voyage Titanic on it-don't know much about it except that it was supposed to have been cast from an original mold from the real thing sold in Titanic's barbershop. Got a 50's puzzle-rather wild and very blue of her sinking. What else is out there?
