Summary Very good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The bottom of the box has some tape on it helping to hold together. The lid has wear around some corners, but otherwise is in good shape. The instructions have a little rip near bottom. The play board is worn on its folding seam, but only on the side that has the checker game. The playing pieces are fine, as is a little paper advertisement for the other Parker Brothers games that was included in set.
