THE PHYSOG FAMILY by Waddy of London, England, C. 1940

This is a much more colourful version of the more familiar 'Physogs' which Waddy also produced which had black and white faces and parts. In fact, on the back of the enclosed leaflet it states, "For adult and family parties we recommend the novel card game called "Physogs." It is based on the book and "Daily Express" articles entitled "Character from the Face" and invented by author of them and a collaborator". This more colourful version is also produced by Waddy Productions of Astor House, London WC2 England in the 1930s/early 1940s, The original instruction leaflet contains explanations for play as a toy and as a game. For the game the heads are shuffled, face down and dealt to two-four players. Then the eye, nose and mouth portions are shuffled and put into heaps and players pick out a designated number of each. The one who if first to construct a satisfactory face wins - decided by a majority of the players - gaining five points. The parts are then shuffled and the game resumes. Wonderful graphics. Box good for age with some nibbles to edges. The pieces all complete, unbent and in very good condition. Original rule and advertising leaflet
