Parcheesi


Parcheesi • this painting is sold

Each year our parents would treat us - five kids - to a board game at Christmas. One of my favorites was - and still is - Parcheesi. When my Mother was in Phoebe Ministries, there were two women who, each day, would play game after game of Parcheesi.

Several months ago I received a commission from a gentleman who played Parcheesi with Katherine Hepburn. He claimed that it was her favorite game. I have no doubt.

I've given away several Parcheesi games at Christmastime. Of course they have to be the versions with the taller wooden game pieces (as opposed to the diskettes). And, just recently I saw a dilapidated Parcheesi box on top of a garbage bag in the dumpster .... I carefully removed it and opened the lid to find that all of the pieces were still enclosed in the plastic bag. The game board had never even been opened !!! My lucky day !

So, if you're indecisive about what to give your kids for Christmas - or any occasion for that matter - why not consider bidding on Ebay for a vintage Parcheesi game. You'll have years and years of fun and a lifetime of good memories with your family and friends.

If you would like to purchase a 6" x 6" oil painting on stretched canvas that you see on this site, or commission a painting that is special to you, please email me.

These paintings are priced at $100.00 plus s/h.
