Containing a rich history dating back to ancient times, board games delight children and adults alike with their playful nature. Though these games come in a wide variety of topics and themes, many games connect with the culture of their times. Wealth accumulation games reflect the growth of a consumer society, war games re-create familiar battles, and educational games prepare children for school and work. Popular television shows, films, books and other entertainment media also find their way into board games, allowing players to actively participate in their favorite fictional worlds.
This board game is based on the American sitcom "The Partridge Family," which aired on ABC from 1970 to 1974. The series featured a widowed mother and her five children who formed a pop music band and toured to various locations across the country in an old school bus. The series was based on The Coswills, a real-life family who formed a musical group in the 1960s. In this board game, players take on the role of a member of the Partridge family and race to be the first person to get to their tour bus.
