"The Sailor Boy, A Game" by Parker Brothers, is a rag-to-riches race style board game. Games such as this, popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, related to the rags-to-riches novels of Horatio Alger. Players begin the game as a cabin boy and the winner becomes admiral. Parents likely hoped their children might learn from these games as well as enjoy playing them.
