In this family-friendly reenactment, Reissued 1941 Classic: Flying the Beam Board Game, a player puts a marker on the nearest “leg” of the beam, then spins to determine how far their plane advances. To land safely and win, be the first to reach the assigned runway by an exact count. Box, 18.25"l x 9.5"w.
