Board Games by Desi Scarpone

Board Games have been a part of America for more than 150 years. They seem to reflect the political, social and recreational mores of the society and are an entertaining and enlightening record of the country's growth as a nation. This book will stimulate memories of the games you played in which you risked it all at the throw of a dice or the spin of a wheel. 1475 individual board games are presented in color photographs dating from the 1940s through the 1980s along with interesting text and their memorabilia and advertising. The man who invented the game COOTIE is featured along with his many other game inventions. These colorful gameboards, packaging and game pieces have become fascinating to collectors today. The updated values in each caption reflect the current market. BOARD GAMES is a visual delight which toy dealers, collectors and past players all will enjoy and cherish.
