Rare 1940's Black Americana "boo Boogy Mans" Puzzle Mint In Box W/ Tin Toy Boat For SaleCheck out this cool 1940's puzzle called "BOO BOOGY MANS!" It’s all about 3 missionaries who were stranded on Cannibal Island with three cannibals (Boo Boogy Mans). The problem (puzzle) was how to cross the Boogy River to the mainland in a boat without ever being outnumbered by the cannibals, as the boat would only hold two persons at a time! The puzzle is complete with an adorable little 1-3/4 x 3/4" tin boat (Amazing this wasn’t lost) and a complete instruction sheet telling exactly how to solve the problem. The box is 4 x 3 x 3/4" with wonderful graphics picturing the cannibals & missionaries and graphics on the inside showing the "Boogy River" and the mainland. The box, little tin boat and the instructions are all MINT & UNUSED! The sheet also has advertising for other games as well as the "BOO" puzzle. The playing pieces are dimes & pennies. We've never seen this piece before!
