Old Maid games come in many forms, the most common being card games where the object is to avoid the Old Maid card. This board game takes a different tact, having the players assume the Old Maid persona as they move through the streets of a board game, meeting all kinds of people in the neighborhood – some that slow them down (listening to a fish story told by a long-winded neighbor) and others that speed them up.  Here the object is to avoid being the last Old Maid to make it to the center of the board.
