In May of 1927, Charles Lindbergh—a U.S. Air Mail pilot—completed one of the world’s first trans-Atlantic flights, traveling from New York to Paris in just over 33 hours, becoming an immediate international celebrity and a historic icon in the immerging field of aviation.
Capitalizing on America’s budding fascination with the skies, in addition to the growing availability of commercial flights, Parker Brothers introduced “The Air Mail Game” in 1929 to excited critical acclaim. The purpose of this simple, though captivating, card game is to deliver mail to twelve cities across the nation before your opponents. From Boston to San Francisco, players must navigate turbulent weather, mechanical difficulties, and other unexpected obstacles to complete their objective and achieve aerial victory! 2-4 players.
