Round Up, The Riders of the Range party game was named after the Eagle comic strip, that in turn was based on a radio series, that might have been influenced by the title, but not the characters or plot, of a film! See Riders of the Range, the card game by Pepys for more details.

The game bears no address and there is no mention of Castell Brothers.
In 1953 Castell Brothers produced produced four games featuring Eagle magazine characters, two card games (Dan Dare and Riders of the Range) and two party games (Space Ships - The Dan Dare Treasure Hunt and Round Up - The Riders of the Range Action Game). Pepys also produced an Eagle Bond Junior Stationery Set, presumably at the same time.
