Patrick Price, co-owner of Dogbotz Boneyard, presents one of his all-time favorite (and now classic) games that he played with his family as a child - Game of the States. This is the 1960 version of the game originally produced by Milton Bradley. It is quite simply a great family game and a hard one to find in very good vintage condition.
The game components are in excellent "played with" condition. The slight wear on the game components and box is evidence that the game was played, but it has been very well kept. The box has some edge and corner wear, and there is one glued corner. More importantly, the game has all its original components, which means it can still be played as it was more than 50 years ago!
Games of the States is highly a entertaining and educative game. It teaches the location of each of the states, the capitol city, and its important industries and products, which the players buy and sell. The object of the game is to buy a product in one state and haul it on a truck to another state, where you then try to sell it at a profit. The player who has the most money at the end of the game is the winner. Duration: 30 minutes.
This vintage game is ideal for families who enjoy playing board games and for the collector of vintage games.
