 Big Game Hunter was the saviour of bored kids everywhere.
    On wet miserable days, he would pull up in his cadillac and
    whisk them away for an extra-large gaming adventure. He'd
    set up jumbo-size versions of familiar games, like snakes
    and ladders or ludo in all sorts of exotic locations - on safari,
    in the desert, underwater or in the jungle even. Once, he
    even arranged for space-rocket-style darts match using
    the moon as a dartboard!

    BGH first showed up in Krazy #1, where we saw him march
    off Nobby and his pal for a super-size game of noughts and
    crosses, with the Red Arrows providing vapour trails for the
    "board" and our two lads parachuting with coloured smoke
    canisters to draw their respective O's and X's...

    He was a strange lad, really, was BGH. He was rolling in
    lolly (inherited? We're not told), old enough to drive a car
    (supposedly) but still hanging with kids way-y-y younger
    than himself. And most of the games he arranged involved
    heavy machinery, or extreme sports events, or dangerous
    animals and reptiles.

    Health & Safety would have had a field day!
