About Me

My photo
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

3M - Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company - MMM

1902-present

This multi-national, multi-product behemoth produced a number of board games in the 1960's and '70's among which was the the game ‘Feudal’ which contained 6 different coloured armies of 13 figures each, scale varies with the 'command' figure being bigger than the others. Some of the games (they are linked to 70-odd on Board Game Geek) are licensed, cross pollinated or joint projects with other makers such as Milton Bradley (MB Games) and Avalon Hill so it may have been 3M's position in the paper/stationary industries that led to their involvement?

Board Games
- Feudal (1969, English language [US] edition)
- Feudal (1969, German language edition)
