Parcheesi Pocket Edition

board game

Selchow & Righter Company was one of the early game producers in New York City. E.G. Selchow formed a partnership with John Righter in 1880. The firm was known best as a "jobber," or business that made money producing other people's games. Their first huge success came with the board game Parcheesi. Selchow claimed that he purchased the American rights to this game in 1867. It proved a continued success for the firm. Other manufacturers brought out other versions with slightly different names. This example is a special "Pocket Edition," with a smaller board and playing pieces, packed in a small folder.
