The Lightning Dart Wheel


An early patent date of 1874 marks "the Lightning Dart Wheel" game, by an unknown maker. The game appears to be some kind of indoor bowling game or a game in which the object is to somehow knock over a group of pegs. The box illustration probably showed a scene of the game in play, but it has faded with age.
