A clear copyright date of 1895 marks Parker Brothers' board game "News Boy." Similar to other games of this era, this example draws from Horatio Alger's juvenile literature. Alger's books typically tell rags-to-riches stores of hardworking boys. In these games, players enter at the bottom, in this case as a news boy, and the winner is the firrst to become editor.
