Ye gods that is frightening...and it's a child's game? Reminds me of the poster for Magic (the movie)- and associated trauma from my youth...

As I can gather, Cantor has to get from home to the club house without getting pulled over and having to fight tickets in court, or some such thing. I think he even gets to stop for drinks along the way...

There's a later version of this game that doesn't involve Cantor at all (and I have a set of it with a completely different box, with a more cartoony Cantor charicature).
