Chopper Chase from MatchBox (1973)

Released in 1973, Chopper Chase was a motorcycle chase game for two to four players. Each player used a Throttle Cord to release a metal Speed Ball that nudged the bike up the hill. After the ball rolled back down to the bottom of the game board, players re-engaged the Throttle Cord to propel their cycle up the hill further. The first player to cross the finish line and raise the checkered flag was declared the winner.
