You Sunk My Battleship!

Posted by Ashley Rae on July 15, 2009

BattleshipAccording to BoardGameGeek.com, Milton Bradley’s Battleship has been in production since 1967.  The game is meant for two players with concealed sides of the board.  Each side includes pegs, both red and white, and battleships.  The ships range from two to five squares and our secretly placed on each opponents side.  Each turn of the game allows for the opposing player to guess the location of a hidden ship.  They are acknowledged with a “Hit” or “Miss”.  If a player sinks all of the opponent’s battleships, they are the victor.

This friendly game hangs above the shop located in Pixar Place across from Toy Story Midway Mania.

Command Post

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 15, 2009

The Command Post has been assembled thanks to these blueprints for the project. It’s unclear who might have planned the design. Maybe Andy, Woody, or the Army Men themselves.  But this is an awesome little find at the Cast Members Only door.  At first, it seems like a small doodle, but really is a sketched design of Pixar Place.  The placement of Mr. Spell and the Scrabble Board were just a part of the bigger picture.  Thanks to Don McCann for pointing this one out.

More Fun Than A…

Posted by Ashley Rae on June 14, 2009

It seems that Andy’s toys are overflowing into Pixar Place.  With some noticeable favorites, such as Battleship, Scrabble, and Dominoes, sprawled around the area, nothing is more apparent than the decorative Barrel of Monkeys.

According to Retroland, Barrel of Monkeys was created in 1966.  Each barrel is filled with 12 monkeys.  The point of the game is to link the 12 monkeys without breaking the chain.  Eventually Milton Bradley took over the monkey business and continued production of the childhood game.
