    Description

    The game board consists of a map of the United States showing each state with a hole for where the capitol city is located. The board itself is an insert in the game box.

    Players take turn drawing a card from a deck which has the name of a state capitol on it. If the player can correctly name the state, they place a peg of their color into the board and count that states electoral votes as theirs.

    When all states have been pegged, candidates add up the points to see who won.

    (Submitter's note: I just picked this up at a flea market for $2. At first I thought I was missing 2 cards since there were only 48 until I saw the copyright date and realized there were only 48 states back in 1931! Whoops...)

    This game refurbishes and replaces Alderman-Fairchild Co.'s The Way to the White House, which is the same game with minor cosmetic differences. That version also used a spinner instead of a deck of cards.
