Looking for the name of an old board game featuring a wolf, I think he was called Willy. I can't remember much about it, but I played it a few times in the 80s, may have been older than that. It was quite scary for me because I was young. I think there was a figure of the wolf and there may have been a red and yellow piece for a player to choose. Does anyone remember this game?
The Uncle Wiggily board game had colored pieces that moved on a track, and the "Fox Den" had an animal that looked like a wolf. The game is filled with creatures, unfortunate events, and close calls that could frighten a small child. It was first published in 1916, but has been republished as recently as 1989.
Sounds like Beware of the wolf which features quite a big wolf in the middle of the board and is from the eighties (1981).
