Game Hunter was the saviour of bored kids everywhere.
On wet miserable days, he would pull up in his cadillac
whisk them away for an extra-large gaming adventure.
set up jumbo-size versions of familiar games,
and ladders or ludo in all sorts of exotic locations
- on safari,
in the desert, underwater or in the jungle even.
even arranged for space-rocket-style darts match
the moon as a dartboard!
BGH first showed up in Krazy #1, where we saw
off Nobby and his pal for a super-size game of
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
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
heavy machinery, or extreme sports events, or dangerous
animals and reptiles.
Health & Safety would have had a field day!
