Sum-It [Blue] - It's The Game That Counts
Publisher: Sum-It Card Game, 1930s
|Card Game||Family||2 to 4||7+ Years||No dice||No|
This card game dates from the 1930s when shillings and pence were the currency in Britain.The pack consists of 60 playing cards and rules. There are 52 denomination cards depicting amounts of pre-decimal money (e.g. 1d and 10s) and 8 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.
A beautifully presented game in a telescopic box.
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 deck is entirely complete
The contents are in excellent condition
The cards are bright with no creasing. A few faint marks on some cards - but this is only minor. The rules are clean but with rusting to the staple.
The box is in excellent condition considering its age
The gold paper on the top of the exterior box is starting to peal away slightly at the left edge. A few very minor scuffs. The interior box is virtually mint. Overall, this is a great example.

Buyers Guide To Sum-It [Blue]
There is also a version of this game in a red design rather than blue. It is unclear whether one version was published earlier than the other (both date from the 1930s). Waddingtons produced a version of the game in the 1960s, although the production quality was considerably inferior. In 1971 Britain decimalized its currency and the game was updated to reflect this.
The 1930s editions are now sought-after by collectors.
