Parker Brothers' "Prisoner of Zenda, A Game" demonstrates a high quality game from that game producer. Characterized by a composite box of wood and paper with a hidden drawer for the playing peices, the game features a two-way racing board. Players may start at either of two castle starting points, racing to the other. Author Anthony Hope penned the original novel in 1894; this board game appeared just two years later, capitalizing on the book's success. Collectors prize high quality Parker games such as this.
