Listing Detail Tabs

This game called Run Around was made in New Zealand in the 1940's. It is large measuring 560 mm in diameter. The whole top section spins and has a very smooth bearing or similar mechanism to rotate on.
Obviously this is some sort of gambling game as the board has the suits from playing cards on the top surface.
It also looks like you can place bets on each of the divisions on the board. I am guessing that you throw dice down the open channel and sitting at a table the board can be spun around to each player.

When I acquired the game there were 3 crown and anchor dice in the box. I don't know how the game is actually played.
However this is an interesting piece of New Zealand games memorabilia and comes complete with box. You can see that the "Run Around" name on the front has TM underneath it and on the base another transfer has NZ Pat. applied for. I have had a quick search to no avail but you should be able to find out some detail about this interesting piece.
By the way the box needs a clean and I will attend to this...the dots on the case are dirt not borer. Please click here to ask a question
