Speed Card Game - 1960s

£30.00

Speed (manufactured in Great Britain by Pepys) is a card game for 2-5 players where the object of the game is to get rid of all the cards in your hand. There have been at least 14 editions of this game published. Speed is a predecessor of the popular game UNO and a contemporary of Whot.

Players are dealt a hand of cards (6 cards for 2 or 3 players, 5 cards for 4 or 5 players). Players play cards by matching the set of the previously played card (Aeroplane, Train, Ship, Motor or Animal), or by playing a card bearing the same number in the top corner (the Animal suit has 2 numbers per card). When a player is unable to do either of these, he draws a card from the draw deck.

 

This is the 8th edition of the game in great condition, a little wear on the corners of the box. Grade 2 under the Hoyles Vintage Grading System.
