Wizard of Oz game. Fairchild Co. 1957
From 1957, The All Fair board game of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. This one is used with the most wear affecting the spinner with severe rubbed away graphic in the circular pattern of the spinning action. The 4 wooden play marker pieces are here and 31 of the 32 playing cards are present. The cards do show some fading and handling wear. Please see photos and ask questions in advance. The original directions have some folds and wrinkling. Interestingly the opposite side of the directions tell the Original story of the Wizard of Oz and do it on one page. The game box is in a condition I'd call fair and repaired. The front long side panel was glued back on and shows seam and corner damage plus seam wear around the box. The plain insert is inside. The game board is bowed to the middle and has creasing and splotchy bright areas which appear to be from age and or storage. The top is mostly flat, glossy and colorful. Despite its flaws and wear this game can display well. It is intended for an adult collector to display and no longer recommended for children of any age to play with. Game measures approximately 8 1/2 X 16 1/2 X 1 1/4 inches.
