Campaign - 1935


A beautiful war game from the 1930s that is not to be confused with the identically named game produced by Waddington's. This version was produced by Wills and Hepworth in Loughborough, United Kingdom. The company is better known for producing the "Ladybird" range of children's books.

This particular red copy is referenced in the book 'War Games and Their History’ by Christopher George Lewin and pre-dates the last blue copy we had. 

The object of the game is to reach the opposing sides base with one of each unit type. Each side has four units of tanks, four units of artillery and six infantry units. 

2 Players 

Box dimensions: 21.5 x 14 x 2.5cm 

Board dimensions: 54.5 x 73cm 

The game is in superb condition, with only the corners of the board showing wear, otherwise the game and its contents are complete and in immaculate condition. We know for a fact that the game has been stored safely for the majority of its life by a collector. Grade 1 under the Hoyles Vintage Grading System.
