The vintage 1961 Grolier game - The Book of Knowledge Electromatic Dial Quiz - is in good to great condition. The instruction booklet is with the game.

The box is only in decent condition. The corners and ends of the box are either loose and/or taped.

There are no breaks, repair places, or broken sections on the game. The battery does not come with the game. We have not tested the game. The game is being offered as a decorative piece. While it is possible the game works, we simply have not tested it.

The 1961 Grolier game has the Transogram Gold Medal on the side of the box.

Along with the dial board, there are 6 sheets included with quiz information on both sides.

The pictures show the different cards.

The bottom card has more discoloration around the edges where it has been located on the bottom. This is probably an indicator this game has not been played a lot.

The decorative possibilities for this game are many. The game room display shelf would certainly welcome this beautifully designed vintage game. Also, the retro-modern style theme would be enhanced with the addition of this gorgeous collectible.

The collector will appreciate this game for its attention to detail and colorful design.

The box with all the contents of the game weighs approximately 34.0 oz.

The box measures 16.25” in length x 12.25” wide x 2.25” tall.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may appear to change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that we do not enhance all of our pictures. Sometimes the first picture is enhanced for lighting purposes, etc. Therefore, the other pictures should be in very close agreement with the color.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of manufacturing or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
