This is a small game of auto racing: it folds into its own plastic case measuring 2.5" x 4" (6.5 cm x 10 cm). One side has a small snap open compartment holding 2 magnets in two different colors (4 total). The other side pulls out into a tri-fold board which unfolds to 6" x 3.5" (15 cm x 9 cm), remaining attached to the plastic case. The case itself also has built into it two spinners which are activated by a switch: pull the switch and let go and the spinners spin quite fast with a satisfying sound vaguely reminiscent of a car, I suppose. Checkered Flag is one of the Milton Bradley "Flipsiders" games.
