Yacht Race Game
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.
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).
(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
or other minor flaws with the game parts. Boxes will have
the slightest hint of shelf wear. EXCELLENT (7-8):
The game has seen some use but it was obviously well taken care of.
some light handling creases or other signs of
careful use. Board might have just a hint of color loss or
corners. Boxes will have light rubbing to the artwork or
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
rubbing, light staining, dishing, 1 or 2 neatly split corners,
minor writing and/or a few pieces of tape. No major
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
condition. Box may have staining, writing, split
dishing and/or other structural damage but it will be intact and still
Only suitable to fill a space in your collection.
Game will be missing
parts (these will be noted). Box will have serious damage and
be missing aprons or badly torn.
