Hot Rod or Car-themed Board Games?

Discussion in 'The Antiquated' started by Big A, Mar 10, 2021.

  1. I had a look through the Hot Rod Toys thread and didn't see any games (34 pages, I skimmed, so maybe missed some).

    Anyway, my brother just gave me this one. 1953 "Assembly Line" game from Selchow & Righter (same company that did Scrabble and a bunch of other games I'd never heard of, most that attempt to be educational... I'm sure the kids loved 'em :rolleyes:).

    It doesn't look like it's ever been played. Ford, Chevrolet, Plymouth and Studebaker dukin' it out for automotive supremacy. Not sure I would've thought so when I was a kid, but I think it's pretty darn cool now...






    Now I want to find a "Huggin' The Rail" to go with it...

  3. DE-FENDERS, Here's some more Touring games, It was one of the oldest car games ever until the last edition in 1967.
    The first Touring game was produced in 1906 by the Willie Dorr Co., the small game in the upper left corner,
    in 1916 Parker Bros. took over production and produced the game until it stopped in 1967, the large game at the bottom.

    This one is new, not vintage, but I picked it up based on the box art!

  18. Holy smokes those are some cool ones Mick. We had a Touring card game when I was a kid, I'd forgotten all about it until I saw your photos. My dad probably still has it, we're all hoarders in my family.

    I've been thinking about designing and making my own hot rod board game for years. Ideas are starting to percolate again... :D
