Wheeling: A Game for cyclists - 1890s

$278.00 $357.00

One of the old all-time classic English games. The game represents a race from London to the Anchor's pub at Ripley (which still exists!). Made in England by J. Jaques & Son of London. A wonderful game with great period artwork.

What is unusual about this particular copy is usually the game has four lead bicycles but this version has four hand painted card playing pieces instead and it includes two metal dice and a shaker. 

2 - 8 Players 

Unfolded board dimensions: 37.2 x 75cm

 

This is a very old board game with a separate board and box, sadly the box is damaged and has heavy tape repairs. The pieces and board are in excellent condition. Grade 3 under the Hoyle's Vintage Grading System (see here).
