Place of Origin

Maker Milton Bradley Company

Maker Details The Milton Bradley Company is an American board game company established by Milton Bradley in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1860. In 1920, it absorbed the game production of McLoughlin Brothers, formerly the largest game manufacturer in the United States, and in 1987, it purchased Selchow and Righter, makers of Parcheesi and Scrabble. Milton Bradley was taken over by Hasbro, Inc., in 1984. Now wholly owned by Hasbro, it is still retained as one of Hasbro's brands, similar to the manner in which former Milton Bradley arch-rival Parker Brothers is one of Hasbro's brands.

Summary Poor

Assessor Cassie Coffey

Notes Although the colors of the lithograph are still vibrant, the condition of the game itself is poor because this is the only present piece. The section of lid has been cut/removed from the original box. It also has water damage and chipping.
