Color Checkers is similar to Conventional Checkers but the difference is all moves are determined by the spinning of the color wheel.

Players place their eight Men heavy end down in the White & Black squares on the first four rows of their side. When a player spins the color wheel, he can only move one of his men to a adjacent square of the same color the wheel stopped on.
When a player makes it to the other side, the Last row of his opponents side called "Kings Row" His piece becomes a King and is turned upside down so the heavy end is up. When a piece is a King it can move in any direction.

Game is 100% complete. Has 16 wooden men, game board & spinner. Instructions are on the inside of box top. Box has heavy shelf wear. 3 of 4 corners and 2 spots on the edges were split as well as some fraying of some of the box edges. All was repaired as best as possible.
Corners and edges are now sturdy again.

Graphics on box looks like it was made in the 1930's. There is no issue date on the Game, but a U.S. Patent search on the number 2,720,399 listed on the instructions shows the patent was issued for the spinner mechanism in 1954.

Game was made by Detroit Toy Works 1025 Brush Street, Detroit 26 Mich.
Today that address appears to be a parking garage according to Google Maps.

Game has been previously played with unless otherwise noted.
All Games are complete and if necessary have been repaired or completed to restore the game to as close to original condition as possible. Any defects will be noted in Item description.
We strive to present a product that will not disappoint.
