Description

Mark Twain’s iconic American novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, have been adapted into a wide variety of media formats since they were first published in the last quarter of the 19th century. Here we have a game created in 1925 by the Stoll and Edwards Co., Inc. of New York.

Around the same time, the company began a syndicated comic strip following Twain’s two protagonists, and it’s likely the game was issued to promote readership. Interestingly, a note in the lower left indicates that the game was created with permission from the estate of Samuel Clemens and the Mark Twain Company.

Players start in the Village of St. Petersburg (upper right) and advance their tokens by rolling a dice (not included). Familiar scenes from the novels push a player forward or send him back, depending on their tone. The first to reach the treasure box is declared the winner.
