The Goonies Game

If you’re living on planet Earth and between the ages of 14-85 I’d venture to guess you’ve seen The Goonies movie.

Most of you have also probably done the Truffle Shuffle at least a few times, and yelled “Heyyyyy you guys!” or “Baby Ruth!” in a Sloth imitation that would probably be seen as pretty insensitive these days.

What’s more forgivable is if you didn’t realize this classic movie was turned into a great board game. The game naturally follows the plot of the movie — try to follow the map to the treasure before those evil Fratelli’s catch up to you. The package comes fully loaded with a map, jewels, and some of of One-Eyed Willie’s coins.

When released in 1985 it also featured an offer for a free The Goonies poster with proof-of-purchase for Baby Ruth candy bars. Who knows, if you find the game on eBay maybe the Baby Ruth promotion is even still valid.
