"Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty Game" is a Parker Brothers Inc. track board game copyright dated 1958 based upon the Walt Disney Productions animated film "Sleeping Beauty" (1959).

Object of the game

The object of the game is to be the first player holding three different picture cards to reach the space marked "The End".

Equipment

* 1 folding, center-seamed game board illustrated with scenes and characters from "Sleeping Beauty"
* 4 counters (one each of red, yellow, blue, and green)
* 4 "magic" wands
* 1 set of picture cards
* 4 dials, each numbered 1 through 6

et up

The game board is opened and placed upon a flat surface. Each player selects a counter and a dial. The cards are shuffled and placed face down on the card space. The 4 wands are placed to the side of the game board. Each player spins his dial and the player spinning the highest number plays first.

Play

The first player moves the number of spaces along the track according to his spin on his dial. If he lands on a pink star, his turn ends. If he lands on a yellow star, he draws a card and follows its instruction. If he draws a picture card, he retains it face down at his place. If a player spins a 6, he has the choice of moving 6 spaces or taking a magic wand. He may play the wand at any time during the game and in doing so draws 2 cards, following their instructions. A player must hold three different picture cards before entering the Path of Happiness. If he does not hold 3 picture cards, he continues around the Deep Sleep circle until he attains the required 3 picture cards. Should a player land on a purple Maleficent space, he returns one of his picture cards to the deck.
