WE'RE GONNA HANG OUT THE WASHING ON THE SIEGFRIED LINE - VINTAGE WW11 CARD GAME 1940s

Well we've not seen this game before. A first in some thirty years of seeing most card and board games from 1800 onward. The box measures 13.5 x 10 cms and the rules are pasted to the inside of the lid. The object of the game: to get all the washing hung on the line, (i.e. set out on the table in front of each player). There are washing cards, hazard cards ("Pup Paws Panties - Rewash!). Players have to discard and pick up cards from the central pile and may hang an article on the line as soon as he picks a card with the correct washing cost. When one player succeeds in hanging up all his washing, the other players add up the money-value of the washing not hung out which is counted against them. They then proceed to the next round. Thrilling! Well, it's certainly entertaining and the illustrations are a joy. A piece of social history - war and games. They went hand-in-hand and probably still do.
