Offered is the rare and highly sought after Elvis Presley board game made in 1956 by Teen-Age Games, Inc. The board game was housed in a pink box with a large black-and-white image of a smiling Elvis on the cover. Not surprisingly, the theme was love and the tag line on the box cover was "A Party Game for the Young at Heart." This example includes original box; colorful board printed with phrases like "Let's Go Steady" and "Can't Do Without You"; playing directions and rules; full-color spinning board with Elvis and guitar as spinner; pink-and-blue cardboard record disc pieces (one missing); Question and Penalty cards in original holder; green cardboard box insert; and retail sell sheet stating a suggested retail price of $2.98 and touting "an 8 x 10 Photo of Elvis Presley Free in Every Game." Although this free photo is not included in this example, the game set contains everything for an evening of fun centered on love and Elvis—what better combination? Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The game box measures approximately 10 1/4 by 20 x 2 inches (26.03 x 50.8 x 5.08 cm).



The game board is in excellent condition and the accompanying pieces are all in lightly used but exceptional condition for their age and purpose. One record-shaped playing piece is missing while none of the others have been punched from their original cardboard. The box is in very good condition with some wear around the edge, some fading to the cover and a dent to the bottom, none of which affect the overall appeal of the stunning graphics.
