McLoughlin Brothers' board game "Whirlpool" is fairly unique among other race-style games. Though each player has six playing pieces, only one is played at a time. The player who has a man on the board at the end, who has "escaped the whirlpool," is the winner. A thrilling box cover graphic indicates this game was marketed towards boys.
