Speed Pepys card game - 1950s


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.

Box is worn and two of the tuck-in top flaps are missing. Includes original rules booklet. Fair, Grade 3 under Hoyle's Vintage Grading System.
