WW11 GAMES.

Convoy WW2 card game c.1940 50 cards in box including instructions, compass and score cards. Players take it in turns to run wartime naval convoys. The players are chosen at the beginning of the game by spinning the 'Compass' card. The other players try to stop the convoy getting through by collecting other cards, mines, torpedoes, submarines etc.

Victory card game, all the cards are there including the instructions it must have been made pre May 10, 1940 as it shows Neville Chamberlain as Prime Minister and Winston Churchill first sea lord, the object of the game is the first one to get 125 points, six cards are dealt to each player, players examine their cards and may discard one to four cards the dealer then replaces the discarded cards then each player picks a card from the pack and discards one in turn until one player declares if he has a 6 cards in compleat sequence of the same service or any two sets of three cards or a sequence of five cards, then the points on the cards are added up or in the case of player holding one of the German penalty cards points taken away.

Spotto, a game played like Bingo but it also had a serious side to it as a educational tool for the Royal Observer Corps and Home Guard etc. There are ten plying cards with Air Craft silhouettes, only four are shown, the counters are missing but I am hoping to recreate them.
