Godzilla-Ideal-board-game-1963

Godzilla Game is a 1963 American board game created by Ideal. The game included board with artwork depicting Godzilla, four plastic conical game pieces, a small wooden red disc to represent a “radioactive missile”, and a cardboard spinner.

This was the first Godzilla toy produced in the United States, and only the second Godzilla toy ever made (the first being a simple suction-cup dart gun set with Godzilla artwork on the cardboard backing made in Japan in 1955).

“Object: To get your marker to the Rocket Launch Area in order to fire the missile at Godzilla’s vital spots.”
