Mystery Retro Justice League Board Game

When I was a kid, I used to stay at my grandma’s place for a while and she would always have toys or something to play with. One thing I thought of recently, that I vaguely remembered, was a retro board game featuring Superman, Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman.

Each character had four game pieces each and I think the point of the game was to get all four of your game pieces to the Hall of Justice and whoever did that first won. I am thinking it is either a Justice League, or possibly a Super Friends, game.

Over the holidays I asked about it and my grandma said it was probably put into a garage sale because we were grown up and they were just taking space.

After a little bit of rummaging, I was able to find the pieces to the game but that was it. I guess in a way I was lucky to get the game pieces because they were stored in a bag of Chinese checkers and the pieces to that while she figured everything was shipped out to a garage sale. But who buys a board game with no game pieces?

I would have made Superman red and Wonder Woman yellow.

There are also tiny magnets on the bottom of the game pieces so the board must have been magnetic as well. The magnets in the pieces are firmly embedded in there with no signs of falling out after a couple decades. I guess they don’t make things like they used to.

I tried searching for it online but never saw any type of retro board game like this. This would have been in the 1980s sometime and judging by the look of the characters, it either came out in the 1970s or based on the 1970s characters for the Justice League or the Super Friends.

If anyone has any information on what this game was actually called and what you were supposed to do, in case I was wrong about how I thought the game was played, please email me or post a comment.
