Space Pilot Game by Cadaco

Recommended Posts

Mr. Jan

This is a game called Space Pilot published by Cadaco-Ellis and copyighted in 1951 and made in the USA.

It states on the side "Designed and Developed in the Game and Toy Research Laboratory

of Cadaco-Ellis".

As Space Pilots players compete to be the first to land on each of five Planets:

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn.

The winner wins the mineral right to each planet and totals 50 billion dollars.

(and thats 1951 dollars)

I had the Zathura game before I found the Space Pilot game.

When I saw it I realy looked familiar and

it was not until I got it home that I realized the box art on the Zathura game was

a direct adaption of the art from this game. The board art is very 1950s design and is one of my favorites.

The board is about 10 inches by 24 inches.

Great classic retro artwork; if I could get just the box lid, I'd frame it to hang in "the cave".
