A CYCLING TOUR
J.W.S&S / JAP, Germany / England, 1890s/1900s

 

   

A classic game also known as  "Cycling". There were many versions of this game.

This version consists of  small box (27 x 20.5 cms) which says: "Designed in England. Manufactured at the 'Spear' works in Bavaria. Copyright in the United Kingdom. J.W. Spears & Sons. London".

 


 

It contains 4 small wooden-based cardboard riders, a compararively small (35 x 20 cm) board with printed instructions, and (just) 18 cards printed on a thin cheap pink paper. 

Nevertheless, the instructions (also found inside the box) say "Rules for the game of 'Cycling' "

 

 

 


 

                  

 

My guess is that this is a cheaper version of the game, maybe a reissue, but I am not able to date it properly. The cardboard parts do not look so old but on the other hand the box and the pink cards do not look so new. I never heard of the game being reissued, but  there are so many things I never heard of...
