Vintage (1976) King Kong board game published by Ideal. This is the Canadian issue of the game with all written words appearing in both English and French.
THIS GAME HAS BEEN INVENTORIED AND IS 100% COMPLETE WITH THE ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS.
About the game: Released BY Ideal as a tie-in product with the 1976 remake of King Kong, the game box features promotional art take directly from the 1976 King Kong movie poster. This is a basic roll and move style game suitable for players of all ages, including the younger set. Players make their way towards King Kong, trying to prevent him from reaching the top of the World Trade Center. Of course, King Kong is no push over! He defends himself by spinning and knocking players off the board! Cards can help or hinder in your mission. A player wins when he | she successfully completes five attack missions on King Kong before he reaches the top of the World Trade Center OR if he | she is the first to complete an attack mission, in addition to the Special Mission (rescuing the girl held captive in King Kong's right hand!). Great title for family game night!
