Goal Of The Game
The goal of the game is to help players become "familiar with American geography and the treasures the United States has to offer." A player spins the “teetotum” and places their counter on the matching number on the map. Each number then corresponds to a location and description in the accompanying booklet. Find multiple formats to download in the Internet Archives!
