PARKER BROTHERS 
YACHT RACE game 
1961 EDITION



This is a very nice game first put out in the early 60's.   It features an over-sized board and high-quality game components.  Game play is relatively sophisticated for a game of this era.  

Parker Brothers purchased the rights to this game from a company called Saturday House.  The early editions of the Parker Brothers game note this connection to Saturday House on the board.  These early versions also include all-metal sailboats and a wooden wind indicator.  Some of the Parker Brothers editions include a plastic compass as well.  


parker brothers yacht race game parts

parker brothers yacht race game parts

The game parts are in VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT condition.  The game has been thoroughly inventoried and found to be complete with the exception of 3 wind change cards.  These cards are all identical, so once 3 have been used you can always replace them in the deck to make up for the 3 missing cards.  Includes the plastic ships with brass bottoms.  Overall I would grade the game parts 6-7 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

The game box is in GOOD-VERY GOOD condition.  The lid has 1 split corner and a tear in the cover art.  The bottom has 2 split corners and some scratching. I would grade it a 4-5 on a 10 scale (see condition guide below).

CONDITION GUIDE: 

MINT (10):
 I will only give this grade to brand new, unused items. NEAR MINT (9):  Shows virtually no use.  Seldom if ever played.   Perhaps some very light handling creases to the instructions or other minor flaws with the game parts.  Boxes will have only the slightest hint of shelf wear.   EXCELLENT (7-8): The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.  Game parts might have some light handling creases or other signs of careful use.  Board might have just a hint of color loss or dented corners.  Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or perhaps some minor dishing or a very light stain.   VERY GOOD (5-6):  The game was not especially well cared for but it still has faired pretty well.  Game parts will show obvious use but nothing will be torn, badly stained or have any serious damage.  Box may have some rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners, minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape.  No major structural damage and artwork will still be generally attractive.  GOOD (3-4): Obviously no care was taken with the game but it is still playable as is.  Game parts show considerable use but the game is complete with all parts in usable condition.  Box may have staining, writing, split corners, dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still usable.   POOR (1-2):  Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.  Game will be missing parts (these will be noted).  Box will have serious damage and may be missing aprons or badly torn.
