Amusing game of innocence abroad
Description:
The colorful and engaging board game displayed here was based on a popular book by the best-selling author Mark Twain, entitled The Innocents Abroad. As did the characters in Twain's book, players ventured across the land for a memorable journey, experiencing costs and perhaps troubles as they would in real life. Appealing to many Americans' desire to travel and experience new places, the game was quite popular, and the company sold many thousands of copies.
