Greetings from the World Trade Center, NYC

Speaking of cards, I found this postcard at an antique mall a few weeks ago, the back is postmarked 1976 which was the same year (on this very day in fact) as the Dino De Laurentiis KING KONG remake release that featured everyone's favorite giant gorilla climbing to the top of the WTCs, instead of the Empire State Building. This is clearly NOT a scene from that movie.

Pretty amazing if they are unrelated and came out in the same year. Although, to be fair, if I was making NYC memorabilia, I'd whip up pictures of giant apes climbing every notable building in town.

I've got a very interesting board game that is tied into that movie. There's a three-foot board (that lays flat, rather than standing) that represents the WTC and a cardboard Kong that's trying to climb it. Your job, as the players, is to try to stop him.

You need to open a museum.
