This is the first edition of the game, published in the late 1950’s.The game we currently have for sale, pictured on this page, is in fantastic condition and appears not to have been used. Apart from a couple of small tape marks on the sides of the box, and a small amount of discolouration on the box insert, the game is in mint condition.The game shows very little signs of use and the only noticeable wear is a small area of surface wear on the box lid and a bit of rubbing on the edges of the game board – but the playing surface is in unmarked and in superb condition.The game has been checked and is 100% complete. Contents:
