PENALTY - VINTAGE FOOTBALL CARD/BOARD GAME BY PEPYS 1960
Consisting of a folding paper football pitch, 52 cards, a wooden football marker and the original rule book the game for play with 2-6 players. N.B.` This example still has its original wooden football marker, unlike many which have a substitute.
Tackles, passing, goal shots, fouls and corners are determined by the cards dealt and held by each player.
In Rex Pitts' interesting history of Pepys games he notes that Penalty was originally published in Italy. The inventor died just after after it was produced and Castell Bros (who had taken over from Pepys) bought it for the production in the UK to join the other Pepys titles in the catalogue
