The propeller blades are turning.

Contents · 
Cardboard game board (11 3/8" by 17") has "A.R.P." (red, yellow shadow) at upper left, with a truck showing a red cross on the side, which is where the race game has its "START". The first step is marked 1, and the game proceeds clockwise in a spiral until reaching the "FINISH", also marked "ALL CLEAR", at step 120. Most steps have a yellow background, and therefore have no special instructions. However, 31 of them have events and associated special instructions, e.g. "MISS TURN", "START AGAIN", "GO TO 22", "THROW ODD No.", etc.

At finish in the center, a man (blue coat, brown bowler hat) is looking left, playing a trumpet, and has a British Union flag behind him.

1 dark blue wooden die with white dots (1/2" on each edge).

1 red cylindrical cardboard die shaker (7/8" diameter and 2 1/8" tall).

Mover playing pieces are painted metal (1 1/2" tall, 5/8" wide, and 1/4" maximum depth): 1 person in red with cane, 1 person in green, 1 person in red.
