This is a "must have game" for the serious The Wizard of Oz fan to add to your collection or to give as a gift. It is entitled, "The Game of The Oz". It was published in 1939, the year the movie was released. It was "based on the motion picture", produced and released by Loew's Inc, with a copyright of 1939. It was produced by Whitman Publishing.
This delightful game has a beautiful litho board that shows all of your favorite Oz characters including Dorothy, the Scarecrow, The Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, the Flying Monkeys and the Wicked Witch. The board is a soft board and is in very good condition with minimal wear. There is one very light soiled spot as seen in the pictures. It measures approximately 18 1/2 by 13 inches.
The box has some damage as seen in the pictures including some moisture damage and a busted end. The box measures approximately 13 1/4 by 7 inches.
This is a wonderful early The Wizard of Oz game that does not show up for sale very often in any condition. The board would look great framed.
This game comes from the extensive collection of famous game collector Alex G. Malloy (He's written several books on games. Check him out on Amazon).
