Board Games: Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Parker Brothers, 1978)

CE 1978-1

CE 1978-2

CE 1978-3

The game doesn’t look terribly different than Avalon Hill’s UFO: Game of Close Encounters from the same year. The first board game named after and featuring UFOs may be Flying Saucers, published in 1968 by Funland.

    I got this game for Christmas in 1978, before I’d actually seen the movie. It was from my aunt who lived outside Atlanta. She loved Close Encounters and thrilled that the little boy Spielberg cast for the film (Cary Guffey) was from nearby Douglasville, GA.
