This game originally came in a wooden box with five section inside (similair to a Pope Joan board) and later (or in parallel) the box board was replaced with a paper board.
This is a set of cards only. The 18 main cards are hand stenciled colored but only the main character - not the background. There are also 18 pay and bugle cards that are uncolored. These resemble the earlier edition that I have seen, but coloring was often done afterwards and so this is just a feeling

Condition -The Bugle Horn - cards are in good condition, no damage but odd grubby spots and slightly concave. Photocopy rules can be provided as can a photocopy of the playing sheet / No box

Postage / As postage often changes it will be provided at time of purchase. Postage will be at cost rounded up to the nearest £1.00 to cover packaging.

This game about trying to possess both the "golden egg" and the Golden Egg card at the same time - while paying fine etc as descirbed on other cards.
Golden Egg - Condition - Cards are thick and used (five appear to us to have come from another deck as they are slightly firmer and the backs are a slightly different color) (32 + Golden Egg Game Card), The Golden Goose Card has a forfeit handwritten at the top. THe rules mention a "golden egg" which is passed to the player that last who turned up an egg card. There is no reference to the Golden Goose in the rules which seems strange, and there is no forfiet on this card (apart from the handwritten one). Possibly the Golden Egg Card was passed round and the Game Card is the Golden Goose. A wood painted golden egg is in the box (and the base of the box has been scrapped away to allow the box lid to close over the egg. Having never seen this playing peice we cannot tell if it is original. / Rules - photocopy (and may be from a different version of this game (hence the confusion with the egg being passed around) / Box - original wooden box - base has a crack one side missing a very small piece at base (has been reglued) - Lid repaired at one end and does not fit perfectly - picture on lid clean and good

Postage / As postage often changes it will be provided at time of purchase. Postage will be at cost rounded up to the nearest £1.00 to cover packaging.
