A beautiful and rare boxed game.
It consists of playings cards from the eight to the Aces in four suits, each of which has a musical score on it.
The cards must be laid out in the order 8, 9, 10,J, Q, K, Ace - but the suits maybe in any order -
which I think means there are 65,536 variations - all of which "form a perfect tune"
