Meet the Presidents
Gamemakers Selchow & Righter started producing their Meet The Presidents game as early as 1953.
The object of the game is simple. Players move their Presidential coin tokens around the board, answering questions about the history
of our Presidents, moving each one closer to the goal of the White House. When a player gets all eight of his President coins in
the White House, he wins.
This game was a steady seller for several years, at least through the presidency of Lyndon Johnson, possibly because the subject matter
was one that parents would easily approve; in other words, it was a game that would help kids to (ack) learn something
and was possibly snubbed by several generations of youngsters as a result. It was also the sort of bland, vaguely instructional
toy that schools kept on hand for off-days when students were bored and restless.
