Brer fox and brer rabbit game
Jump!: The Adventures of Brer Rabbit by Joel Chandler HarrisHarris, Joel Chandler (Adapted by Van Dyke Parks and Malcolm Jones). Jump! The Adventures of Brer Rabbit (1986). This is a collection of five popular tales of Brer Rabbit, that are from the original Uncle Remus stories from the late 1800’s. Brer Rabbit, a mischievous, sassy and smart character is always coming up with tricks and pranks. Brer Fox and Brer Wolf are constantly scheming ways to capture him, but they are typically outwitted. The watercolor illustrations done by Barry Moser, most of which are colorful, capture aspects of the characters’ personalities and contribute to the stories. I especially appreciated the “Storytellers Note” in the beginning of the book that provides the background information of how black slaves in the south shared these stories to their whole community which were appealing to all ages. Target audience: ages 7 to adult (I remember my father being very fond of these stories).

Patented in , The Newbie Game Company's game was designed to demonstrate the evils of exploitative landowners. If you, too, enjoy humiliating friends and family by forcing them into penury, then raise your glass to Monopoly , first published in the USA by Parker Brothers this weekend in But wait! Parker had, years earlier, declined to publish an antecedent of Monopoly called The Landlord's Game. Patented in by one Elizabeth Phillips, it was designed to demonstrate the evils of exploitative landowners. Improbably, Phillips' game did find a British publisher.
Each part forms a complete game in itself. The players begin by buying up the vacant plots of land as numbered on the Board. The " SITE " cards are then shuffled and dealt round, each player having the right to buy any or all of the sites on the Board corresponding to the cards dealt to him. If he throws a " double" he has the option of using the number on one or both of the dice. Unbought sites are rent-free. Any player alighting on the " Solway Fisheries " or " Lord Tonmoddy's Grouse Moor " must go to " Gaol, " unless he can strike a private bargain with the owner to be let off. Any player alighting on " Dottyville Lunatic Asylum" must wait there in accordance with instructions; and on " Lord Broadacres' Estate " must go to " Gaol " without alternative.
In the animated sequences of the Walt Disney -produced film Song of the South like in the tales, Brer Fox is the stories' antagonist, while Brer Bear is his dim-witted henchman. In later appearances of the characters, the two were voiced by Jess Harnell and James Avery. In contrast to the earlier illustrations of Frederick S. Church , A. Frost , and E. Kemble , the Disney animators depict the characters in a more slapstick, cartoony style. The cult film Coonskin , directed by Ralph Bakshi , focuses on a trio of characters inspired by the original folktales.
