Sum-It [Decimal] - The Currency Game
Publisher: Waddingtons, 1971
|Card Game||Family||2 to 6||7+ Years||No dice||No|
This card game originally dates from the 1930s when shillings and pence were the currency in Britain.This pack consists of 54 playing cards and rules. The 48 denomination cards depict amounts of decimal money with pre-decimal equivalents and 6 Sum-It cards. The object of this discard-and-collect card game is for each player to obtain 7 cards that total exactly the Sum-It card he or she has secretly drawn.
The scoring is based on a penalty system. The winner of each round naturally incurs no penalty but the other players must sum the penalty scores on each card (the smaller red figures) in their hands. When a player's running total exceeds 500 points the game ends and the overall winner is the player with the lowest score.

Buyers Guide To Sum-It [Decimal]
There are several versions of this game, dating back to the 1930s. Waddingtons produced a version of the game in 1968, although the production quality was considerably inferior compared to the originals. In 1971 Britain decimalized its currency and the game was updated to reflect this.
The 1930s editions are now sought-after by collectors.
Information about Waddingtons
Waddingtons was a UK publisher of card and board games between 1922 and 1994, when the company was bought by Hasbro.
