The Creature That Ate Sheboygan is a 1979 board game that pits one player as the military and civilian units against another player using one of six customizable giant monsters (a Godzilla look-alike, a sea serpent, a robot, a pterodactyl, a gorilla and a giant spider) to destroy the town of Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Honestly I’m glad there is another giant monster related thing that takes place in here in Wisconsin besides The Giant Spider Invasion. That film is terrible.

I should see if someone in Sheboygan still sells this game…
