This antique Jungo gameboard has some of the nicest lithography you’ll ever find on a vintage game. The game field features all the exotic animals one would expect to see on safari. The directions for the game are on the front and explain how to use the gun sight and load the marble for firing. This is a rare game made by Emmets Toy Corporation (1929-1932) and distributed by the Durable Toy and Novelty company.
This type of early pinball game was referred to as a Bagatelle game. The condition of this gameboard is exceptional considering the surface of the game field is printed on metal. The marbles were made of glass, which would quickly mark and show wear on the painted metal surface. The colors are all original and are slightly darker from age.There are sight bends and dings to the metal gameboard surface and the metal frame that surrounds the game. As is typical with this type of game, the original game balls are missing.
We use these colorful antique and vintage gameboards more for display than as a game to play. A collection of these on a wall makes for quite the conversation. Perfect for decorating game rooms and children’s rooms.
