Terrific vintage board game based on the 1950s quiz show Twenty One.

Contestants stood in an isolation booth with headphones on, so neither of them could hear the others answers.They were asked multiple choice questions on a variety of subjects, such as Animals, Famous People, Geography, Inventions and World History.

You get two isolation booths with contestants, the question and answer booklet, play money and the category selector box. One of twenty tabs is missing for the category selector, but it could easily be reproduced.

The booths stand upright and have a wheel that rotates to keep track of points for the correct answers. The question and answer booklet has some pencil markings where someone checked off the questions and a few of the pages show through, but all the questions and answers are present and legible.
Cover of the box is worn and someone scratched out the face of the host, Jack Berry.

The Twenty One game show was broadcast on NBC. It was involved in a scandal that resulted in the Communications Act of 1960, making it a crime to rig a quiz show. The 1994 movie, "Quiz Show" was in part based on the scandal surrounding Twenty One.

The box measures 12" x 19" and the booths measure 6.5" x 12".
