I'd forgotten Ludo.
There was (probably still is) snakes and ladders, snap, happy families.
I remember wanting a monopoly set, but it was years before we could have one.

Hangman was popular. Can't get much cheaper. Noughts and crosses on a slate.

We had draughts, cheaper than chess I think, but we did get a chess set later.

My Grand-dad made a draughts set, he used slices of broomstick painted white and black for the pieces, the board was a piece of half inch pine panel, it even had a compartment underneath to store the pieces.
We played hundreds(thousands?) of games on it, and we never even put the batteries in. Grin

I remember when blokes working in offices had a pencil tucked behind an ear; and they wore elasticated armbands on their shirt sleeves, and the shirts had detachable collars, with a front and back collar stud.

Do they still make the desk calendars, 3"x3" approx. with 1 sheet for each day of the year, upon which was some gem of wisdom, advice, etc. printed along the bottom of the sheet. I used to volunteer to go in on Sundays and holidays to tear off the sheet, in case when people returned to work, and got mixed up with the dates.Tongue

Carbon paper and flimsies - I detested carbon paper and wretched flimsies!!!

Something I hated more, back before the days of photocopying, we had to type on a piece of paper with the quaility of wax (that was then rolled around a drum, then every time you cranked the handle the barrel would roll over a sheet of paper, making a copy - making an error when typing was a real headache!
