The Milton Bradley CHiPS board game is a vintage game based on the popular U.S television series CHiPS.

 

Background

CHiPS was a U.S television series which for six seasons ran from 1977 until 1983. It followed the adventures of two California Highway patrol officers on motorcycles as they apprehended criminals across Los Angeles, and starred Eric Estrada and Larry Wilcox.

The series was popular and spawned a range of merchandise including action figures produced by Mego, die-cast model vehicles, annuals and a Milton Bradley board game published in 1977.

The game was later re-published in 1981, with new box artwork featuring the two main stars of the show.

The Milton Bradley CHiPS board game

The game is for 2 – 4 players, and features a board based on the freeways and roads of California combined with aerial photographs of Los Angeles. Players play as motorcycle Highway patrol officers, and must move around the board apprehending criminals in cars matching their own counter colour.

It features two dice with cars instead of the number ‘6’. If two numbers are rolled, a player moves their motorcycle towards one of their corresponding criminal cars. If a single car is rolled, a player can move an opponent’s car further from their motorcycle. If two cars are rolled, a player’s car flips over and is immobilized, making it easier to apprehend.

The winner of the game is the first to capture all four of the criminal cars in their corresponding color.

How much is a Milton Bradley CHiPS board game worth?

The CHiPS board game is fairly rare, and can be considered sought after by niche game collectors. Copies in excellent condition with all their playing pieces intact can sell for around $20 on auction sites such as eBay.
