Stanley Gibbons Collect Board Game

£19.99

Product description

Stanley Gibbons Collect: Board Game "share the excitement and tension of building a major stamp collection". Stanley Gibbons is a famous UK firm that sells postage stamps to collectors and published this game in the 70s to promote the hobby. There wasn't much to do in Britain in the 70s.
The game has a board of a 6x6 grid of squares giving certain instructions, a deck of cards showing stamps which fall into various categories (Great Britain, USA, Animals, First Day Covers etc), and some playing cash. Players also have 4 markers to block the board to other players. Players are dealt 5 stamps to start and may swap one with the stamp dealer (banker). Then you roll 2 dice and choose which instruction on the board to follow. So if you roll a 2 and 4, you can use the instruction at 2/4 or at 4/2 on the grid. Players buy, swap, sell, auction, exhibit, damage or fake their stamps until they make a winning set collection.

We don't know if all the pieces are there, box is in pretty good condition considering its age, a stain on the bottom off the outside of the box however. The front off the box however looks so good some of you stamp collecters out there could have it framed and hanged on the wall or even just a talking piece.
