'TOTOPOLY' BOARD GAME: The idea of the game is that racehorses are leased by players and trained by them for the race. Players have the opportunity of leasing horses at first option - that is through the deal, and later the chance arises to lease additional ones in the auction sale. In the same way, players will acquire temporary ownership of a racing stable, veterinary surgeon's practice or forage merchant, etc. When all the horses and businesses have been sold, the training of the horses then commences. And when training has concluded, the race will then begin.

 

 

Not so much a board game as it is an antique, this exquisite piece is a first edition example of a vintage classic. Now in its 78th year, the condition of this game is actually quite astonishing. All the betting slips remain attached (meaning the game is unused); the money in its various denominations has most certainly not been used; and each card is immaculate. But most incredibly - each lead horse presents itself in very good or better condition: every leg, tail, head and jockey remains solidly intact; the numbers are visible and the paintwork is generally excellent. The game is complete in every sense and all pieces are originals.
 
The game board is remarkably solid. It is the original 'Z' shape board andis in very good - showing only minor signs of storage wear. The hinges are solid and the colours are vibrant.
 
We have never seen a game this old in such excellent condition. This is a serious addition to any vintage board game or classic toy collection.
 
For 2 or more players.
 
 
Please note: that the game currently for sale is not the game pictured. It is, however, in equally good if not better condition.
