McLoughlin Brothers apparently marketed the game "Advance and Retreat" with two separate, and completely different, box cover designs. This example bears an image of Santa Claus, over children in a goat-drawn cart. The design likely appealed to both girls and boys. The other version, with a western theme, likely appealed more to boys alone. The game inside each box is exactly the same. Opponents work towards a center space marked "town."
