Basic Fun Board Game Checklist

Basic Fun hit the scene in 1991 with a miniature working keyring version of the Super Soaker. The combination of miniature + working + keyring proved to be highly popular, and over the next 25 years or so they made over 1,000 different keychains. In later years they branched out into other novelty items but, for the purposes of this post, I'm just going to concentrate on their miniature board games (plus a few other minis I need to own). These are highly detailed replicas of their full size counterparts and are perfect for 1/6 scale scenes. One day I will catch them all!

Green - I own it.
Red - Not yet...
