The Fighting Yanks target practice game
« on: March 29, 2014, 06:12:11 PM »
Not really a board game per say, but another one of my father's WW2 era games he played with.

Not too sure why the Soldier's were American and not the Axis, but there were several different Soldiers and with the rifle and pistol, you "loaded" the ammunition which was a bag of rubber bands and you had target practice shooting at the Soldiers. There were also tents marked US Army that you could knock over..

That is an interesting set of targets.....our own soldiers! I hope the game wasn't popular... :o

I was expecting to see buck-toothed Japs in pebble glasses and square-jawed Nazis as the targets...the typical "bad guy" stereotypes of the period...not GIs!!

Interesting. Being it says "soldier set" I wonder if there was another set of enemy and you shot at eachother.

I thought the same things as you guys about the targets...

Since there were no instructions, I will ask my dad if he recalls how he may have used the set..
