THE GOLDEN EGG. This is Chad Valley's version of the mid-nineteenth century Victorian children's card game titled ‘The Golden Egg Game’, which depicted a farmyard with the farmer and his wife, Simple Johnny, pigs, cows, chickens, a dog, horse, a harlequin, the boy who tried to steal the goose, a fox and a golden goose.

The game is played with counters which are placed into a betting pool. Each player acts on the instructions of the card and either pays or receives a token. The player who holds the Golden Egg when the Golden Goose is turned up wins the game and takes the pool. If the Golden Goose is turned up before any Egg cards are exposed, the holder wins the game.

Complete and with the original rules card, this updated 1950s version is in very good condition, the box having no blemishes and with all flaps and the cards very little, if ever, played with. Difficult to find this game in such good condition.
