The Newport Yacht Race: An Exciting Game

board game

Board game manufacturers, at the end of the 19th century, made several types of games to appeal especially to boys. McLoughlin Brothers' Newport Yacht Race demonstrates this. The detailed and exciting box cover design hints at the race-type game inside. The game includes printed game tokens, shaped and printed like little yachts, which fit on wooden bases. Newport Yacht Race features high quality components and design, like many other McLoughlin games from this era.
