3M Bookshelf Games were a series of games created in the 1960s and into the early 1970s by the Minnesota Manufacturing and Mining Corporation. Yep, the post-it note and scotch tape people.

These games are all the same size, designed to be able to fit on a bookshelf. They came in a box, which was fitted into a slipcase. These games had remarkable depth, and are great fun to play. The components are high quality as well. They all have a subtitle, which is listed below with the game. My personal favorite is Acquire. 3M has also produced three other lines of games, Gamettes, Sports Games, and Paper Games.
