1970s Nixon, Scooby D, Jaws, BJK, Disco, Evil Kn
Compiled by fredthebear

Herein are games with an artistic flair, stunning moves, interesting attacks or counter attacks, rare or odd ball nature, and embarrassing blunders. The file outgrew itself; the games of the 1950's, 1980's and 1990's have been moved to their own collections.

Site under construction by Fredthebear.

Thank you Mughug, Life Master AJ, Prasha.
