These games were around before board games

I am a fan of UncommonGoods.com and actually subscribe to their feed. I haven’t ever bought anything, of course, but you never know. I might. I probably will not buy this, however:

Family Game Night

Let me just highlight something from their product description for you:

“Games Include: Blind Man's Bluff, Follow the Leader, Musical Chairs, Sound Charades, Pack Rat, Simon Says, Operator, Magic Hand, Pass the Slipper and many more classic games that don't require dice, game boards, playing cards or game pieces. [italics mine].”

So no dice, game boards, playing cards or game pieces, huh? What’s in the box then, UncommonGoods? A note that says, “Sucker!"?
