Publisher: H P Gibson & Sons, 1950s
|Board Game||Strategy||2 only||7+ Years||No dice||No|
The classic game but in hard-to-find edition by H.P. Gibson (International Series). A well-made game featuring a strong game-board and wooden pieces. A traditional game with traditional production quality - a rare combination these days. Due to its scarcity, it can not have been that common even in the 1950s.
The Condition of the Game For Sale
The images above show the actual game for sale. The following notes provide additional information about this item's condition. See Store Information for details of our appraisal system. Any questions? Just ask.
The game is complete
There is no rule sheet. However, given that the game is so well-known, it is possible it never came with any. After all, how many chess sets come with the rules?
The contents are in good condition
The board does have a couple of scratches and a few marks (these do not show up on the images) - consistent with some use over the last 60 years!
The box is in excellent condition considering its age
Just a price-label mark and a small water stain on one side of the lid. Other than that, an excellent box.

Information about H P Gibson & Sons
In 1903 Harry Percy Gibson started The International Card Company, supplying stationers with card and printed products. In 1919 the company was sold to the De La Rue company and H. P. Gibson & Sons Limited was formed in 1919. Although the International Series brand continued to be used on some products right up to the early 1980s, the company made its name with the HPG Series brand, which included L'Attaque and Dover Patrol. The company is now best known for its jigsaws.
