Game of Walking the Tight Rope

board game

Milton Bradley's game, "Game of Walking the Tight Rope," takes a different subject than many other games from the late 19th century. However, circus toys did enjoy great popularity at this time. A standard race-type game, Walking the Tight Rope players accumulate points to stay on the rope, or lose points to "fall off."
