Buckaroo The Cowboy Roundup Game

board game

In 1947 Milton Bradley Company produced a cowboy-themed boardgame called Buckaroo, undoubtedly meant to appeal to younger boys. Players attempt to corral their steers and return their cowboy game pieces to the ranch, on the game's board, before opposing players. A very simple strategy game, Buckaroo very likely proved popular.
