RARE VINTAGE CARD GAME : ELEVEN STARTS BY HAUSSER 1940s/50s
Eleven Starts "A new Fascinating Card-Game" probably made in the late 1940s/50.
The game consists of 80 cards in four colours. When the cards are dealt the player who has the red eleven begins. If it is not dealt then other coloured elevens take precedence in colour order and, whatever colour, the game begins with an 11 card.
If the player to the right of the dealer has a twelve or a ten of the colour that is played, he places it right or left beside the eleven. If he has none of these cards, but an eleven of another colour then he must place this with the narrow side in line with the first eleven. etc.,etc. If a player has several consecutive cards he can place all of them. The person to place his last card first wind the game.
Those with the most cards remaining and therefore the largest score are the losers. After about 4 - games the total of each player is added together. A game of tactics by obstructing and keeping back suitable cards, especially an Eleven, is all part of the fun.
Box and cards in excellent condition, together with the original instruction sheet.
