In 1962, The Minnesota and Mining Manufacturing Company (today known as the 3M Company) produced a slipcase bookshelf “new action word dice game” for the family entertainment market called Phlounder. Here’s a real dog-eat-dog word game that requires literary skill, manual dexterity, and the ability to remain calm under competitive pressure!
This game is in great vintage condition, with minimal wear to the slipcase, interior box and game components. The inner box top does has one split corner, though. The components of the game include a plastic game board, set of letters, three dice, a bell, and player score sheets. The instructions are found on the inside of the interior box cover. Please see all accompanying photographs for condition issues.
If playing a fast-moving word game with action that matches nimble wits and fingers for a race to ring the bell, then Phlounder is the type of family entertainment you’ve been seeking. The game would make for a great gift for any member of the family as well as an unexpected delight for those people who collect vintage games and toys.
