Welcome Back, Kotter – “The Up Your Nose With A Rubber Hose Game” (1976)

Welcome Back, Kotter - Board Game
Yesterday, the one and only Rob O’Hara posted a Welcome Back, Kotter card game he found while he was out perusing a local thrift shop. At the Arkadia Retrocade we are known for more than just an awesome selection of 80s arcade games. We also have an impressive retro collection of board games like the Welcome Back, Kotter The Up Your Nose With A Rubber Hose Game!

Taking on the role of your favorite Sweathog you must make your way to the head of the class for each row, collecting six word cards…

Up Your Nose With A Rubber Hose

that will complete the phrase “Up Your Nose With A Rubber Hose”.

The Sweathogs

Along the way you frequently help and hinder your fellow players by drawing Kotter and Woodman cards.

I’m excited to say that the board game was really, really fun. Those of us that grew up in the 70s might recall the disappointment of certain board games based on our favorite TV shows…you might get a Six-Million Dollar Man game for your birthday and find that besides the artwork on the board it has very little to do with the actual show. The Welcome Back, Kotter board game keeps with the spirit of the TV show and even has some quotes from the series.

This might be the most important instruction in the game.
