Parkers' Board Games Base Ball Steeple Chase Hop in the Tub Tiddledy Winks

board game

Many game manufacturers produced combination games--boxes which held more than one playable game inside. These usually involved two-sided game boards and generally sold well because the buyers considered more than one game in a single box a bargain. In 1929 Parker Brothers seemed to be counting on its own good reputation, besides the box cover illustration of children happily playing, to sell this combination game set.
