Selchow & Righter Company was one of the early game producers in New York City. E.G. Selchow formed a partnership with John Righter in 1880. The firm was known best as a 'jobber,' or business that made money producing other people's games. Their first huge success was Parcheesi, which Selchow claimed to have purchased the American rights to in 1867. In 1967 the firm produced a 100th anniversary edition, which was most likely a ToyFair premium. Packed in a special box, the game includes commemorative instructions and a booklet describing the firm's history.
