Advance and Retreat a Game of Skill

board game

A date of 1901 marks McLoughlin Brothers' game "Advance and Retreat." The box cover design features a Native American being persued by Union soldiers. The exciting western theme undoubtedly appealed to boys. The game itself is a strategy game. Players compete from opposite sides of the board, advancing toward a "town" space in the board center.
