World’s Fair Wednesday – 1939 New York Board Game

Looking like a hybrid of The Game of Life and Parcheesi, there was apparently a board game themed after the 1939 New York World’s Fair.  It’s tough to find many details on this, but what I could find was worth sharing.  Here’s the cover, from Board Game Geek:

And 1939nyworlddsfair’s got some photos of the actual game board.

Apparently the idea was to build the fairground? It looks sort of Mouse-Trap-ish in design.  Not the greatest photo of the game board, but what you can see is gorgeous.

 

Anybody who stumbles across this post and knows more about this game, please share in the comments!
