The Houndcats Game - Complete - Great Condition
by Milton Bradley
This game is very collectible and came from a collector. He unfortunately had to sell off his entire collection. Every game was wrapped in plastic wrap for 40+ years and stored nicely in a private room with a lot of collectable toys. He kept all the inserts and cardboards included originally, and every game was only played once if at all.

20 Min Playing Time
Based on the Houndcats animated series, this is a typical early 70's spin the dial and move game. The object of the game is to be the player that reaches the most "trouble spots" at the end of the game ("Sparkplug to the rescue!"). A deck of cards is shuffled and the first card is drawn and placed on the appropriate spot on the playing board. Each player then spins the dial once, and EACH player must move their playing piece with the intention of reaching the spot with the trouble card (the spaces on the spinner have a number 0,1,2, or 3, related to each players color so during each spin, each player moves their playing piece the number of spaces indicated for the color of their playing piece). Pieces can move forward or backwards and any number of players can occupy the same space. Once a player lands on the card that represents the trouble spot, the card is taken by that player and a new card is drawn and the process repeats.
