Thunderball is one of my favorite James Bond movies–jetpacks, sharks, scuba fights, beautiful women–what could be better? In 1965, Milton Bradley  produced the Thunderball board game which showcases Sean Connery’s Bond in all his glory.

Any James Bond fan would be proud to display this game in his collection. The game is fairly common and can be had for around $30-40 in average condition, but the price can go much higher for games in better condition. There are always a bunch of these available on eBay, so go get one!

    Wow, that thing looks great. So many board games from the 1960’s had great art. I’m going to have to keep my eye out for this one. Hopefully your post doesn’t spark a bidding war on eBay!
