Mystery Date Game

board game

Mystery Date is an early 1960s board game by Milton Bradley Company, made especially for girls. Like so many other toys and games of the period, the game was heavily advertised during children's and even prime time television programming. Mystery date was updated at least once in the 1970s, featuring "groovy" colors. The board game inspired a very forgettable film, "Mystery Date," starring Ethan Hawke, in 1991. Famed toy designer Marvin Glass designed the original Mystery Date game.
