Description Edit | History

For this particular "version" there were a number of "editions". The editions vary in card backs, the number of cards in the game (100 or 99), and which of the 5 rule versions are with the game.


Basic Game Details

Item
Detail
Boxtop

Card Back(s)

The red geometrical design on left is most typical. It was used for both 100 and 99 card decks.

The blue country lane cards are known with this boxtop. Pink country lane is assumed to have occurred as well. The country lane cards seem to only have been issued as a 99 card deck.

Card Faces

Dating
1925 - date comes from 1925 advertizements showing the boxtop design.


Rules Versions

The following are rules versions which have a latest date of 1926 for the copyright and all are known with the 1925 red back card art. The blue and pink country lane cards seem to only have been issued as 99 card decks.

Not sure of sequence for this version.

NOTE: A-D are almost certainly in chronological sequence, but not sure where E should be. I'm guessing it was the last version of the 1926 rules.

There were a number of rules sheets for this particular style box. At first there were 100 cards, then later versions have 99 cards.
