The Golden Egg card game - 1950-55


Chad Valley Toys have given pleasure to eight generations of children. Several editions of “Golden Egg” card game, which originated in the early nineteenth century as the Game of Mother Goose and the Golden Egg, were published by Chad Valley Games around the time of WW2.

Whilst paying forfeits and gaining rewards as cards are played, the player who holds the “Golden Egg” card when the “Golden Goose” card is turned up is the winner.

This edition was released sometime between 1950-55 as later editions of the game had cards with less colour and square edges. The game was manufactured in Harborne, England. 


41 cards in excellent order with no rips, tears, creases, dog ears or marking. But sadly the original rules are missing so we will include a new print of those. The box is missing both its ends but has not totally collapsed so we will present in a plastic case to keep it preserved. Grade 3 under the Hoyles Vintage Grading System.
