International Yacht Race

board game

McLoughlin's International Yacht Race board game, a classic race game, bears a striking resemblance to a Milton Bradley yacht race game, "Yacht Race" found in the museum collection as registration number 107.3597. The board game covers are nearly identical, except for title and for the colors used. It is known that Milton Bradley acquired McLoughlin Brothers in 1920. Several board games bear unusually similar printed images. Was this game produced first, and the other printed after the acquisition?
