International Football Whist was produced by the English manufacturer Pepys in 1947 just after the end of the Second World War.

it is a game consisting of 44 cards, divided into 4 teams,; England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales, a pitch which is a fold out cloth/paper board - see photograph, and a ball. The ball is a coloured metal disc imprinted with the stitch marks for a football of that period. Unusual for the original disc to still be present.

The object of the game is to score goals by playing the ball into the opponents' goal. The cards are shuffled and cut, the players form 2 pairs of partners A & B - partners A play into the west goal in the first half and the east goal in the second half.

An important sporting game of the period. A collectors item but should be played with the family and enjoyed.
