Zippy Zepps Air Game

board game

A very collectible board game now, Zippy Zepps Air Game represents the peak of quality game manufacture by the Rochester, New York firm of Alderman Fairchild, known as "All-Fair." A typical race game, Zippy Zepps focuses on travel by Zeppelin, or blimp, which captured the public imagination during the 1920s. All-Fair games, during this period, feature art deco board designs and metal playing pieces. Zippy Zepps sold in a box decorated with an airship, while other All-Fair games of the time sold as less expensive separate boards and smaller boxes of implements.
