West Virginia Games and Puzzles

 Collection
Collection Number: A&M.1584

Overview

A collection of puzzles, games (particularly board games) and other recreational activity products of or about West Virginia. The first entry is the Art Lewis Football Game, a split - T offense football board game named in honor of West Virginia University's head football coach of the 1950's. Lewis coached, perhaps, the best football teams at the University with Sam Huff being the most illustrious of a talented crop of players. The game, a production of the Morgantown Game Company, was designed to replicate an actual football game, and is played and scored according to regular college football rules. Other games with a West Virginia theme have been added to this collection.
