Description Edit | History

he is my grandfather and my family's always told me he worked for john sands and designed test match. I have his test match game still, although i'm trying to discover if it is the first one produced. And how to finally give my pa the credit he deserves.

I can confirm that William Hansen did design games for John Sands. In 1939 he designed a game called "The Woolly Sisters and The Adventure of the Giant's Tooth". The artwork, by Sands staff artist Walter Cunningham, is in the National Archives in Canberra. At that time Hansen was living at 16 Bay Road Waverton, in North Sydney. He assigned copyright to Sands, but I don't think the game was published. Cannot comment on his role in designing "Test Match", but I would love to hear from anyone who can tell me more about Hansen, as I believe he had a connection with the Australian children's author Lester Sinclair (aka "John Mystery") who I am researching.
