McLoughlin Brothers' game "Farmer Jones' Pigs," a simple race-style game, dates from around the turn of the 19th century. Players attempt to reach the last square of the game with one of their "pig' pieces. The board is printed with instructions along the way, to thwart pigs' progress. An exciting box cover image, featuring a farmer chasing pigs, probably added to the allure of the game.
