The Wonderful Game of Oz
Box cover for The Wonderful Game of Oz. Salem: Parker Brothers, 1921.

The illustration for the box is a fantastic example of Parker Brothers' game production, and helps make this one of the most sought after materials of Oziana.

Although illustrated by an unknown artist, portrayed are the celebrated characters Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion near the Emerald City. The characters on the game board more closely resemble the illustrations of John R. Neill, The Royal Illustrator of Oz.

Note the Fighting Trees off to the right.


The Wonderful Game of Oz Game Board

Shown below is a close–up of the game board. Notice The Woggle–Bug in the lower portion of the image.
