Produced in 1962 by Selchow & Righter Co. of Bay Shore, New York, America the Beautiful: The Game of Landmarks is in good vintage condition, with all its game components present. The top of the game box shows some minor wear, particularly at the edges. Also, the game component box that is placed inside the box bottom has all split edges. However, the folding game board, four playing pieces, 28 Landmark Cards and the spinner are in excellent shape.
As the game instructions printed on the inside of the box top indicate: “Our U.S.A. is full of famous places. Every state has its own specific landmarks either created by nature or made by men. All of them are of equal importance to the United States as a country.” And so, America the Beautiful: The Game of Landmarks take players on a geographic tour of these notable and naturally or historically significant locations, with the object of the game being to be the first player to collect and have turned face-up seven Landmark Cards.
This great vintage game not only teaches geography and history but also makes for an evening of delightful family entertainment. America the Beautiful: The Game of Landmarks would make an excellent gift for an elementary or middle-school geography teacher as well as for the collector of vintage games.
