Before they made video games, Nintendo made loads of other sweet stuff. One of the sweetest was this Ultraman board game, which has art that looks as awesome today as it did in 1966.

As you can see in the gallery on Before Mario, the game — released using the old "Nintendo Game" logo — doesn't look terribly complicated (not that it should have been, since it was for kids). You spun a dial, you moved around, you battled some monsters.
