This game is a nine hole golf game – each hole being a different obstacle- They are well made and very different unlike any other tiddley wink game we have seen. More pictures can be supplied – please ask – but the box lid shows the pieces and the course below is set out in the way
The history of this game is difficult to trace. Games manufacturing was a fringe activity of Britain’s (the makers of toy soldiers) from very early in their history. Games manufacturers naturally turned to the premier figure makers to participate in their games, but Britains produced games of their own, once more following a tradition established in their early toymaking years. (Old Toy Soldiers Newsletter Vol. 6. )
We have seen a number of games with Pealland as the manufacturer with Britain pieces which supports this. There appears to be little documented and only an 1880 catalogue known.
The other games w have seen appear to be made during the period c1910

Tid-Olf – Condition – the lid is missing its sides – rules are on the inside, the box base is complete, all nine obstacles are present and in good condition – no damage – light use
Postage free UK / Europe £3.50 / Worldwide £5.00

This is made by JWS (Spears of Bavaria) and is a German Market Edition of "Voyage through the Clouds"
The Airship travels to numerous identified locations including: the Alps, Switzerland, Florence, Rome, Venice, Vienna, Berlin, North Sea, London, New York, Paris, Strasbourg. The game has 70 numbered positions with various adventures the players encounter including heavy storms and fires
This version has six different colourful lead models of balloons and airships are playing pieces (as opposed to card or metal zepplins in other versions) The board is very large and folds into four - the centre fold is taped, the vertical folds are cut (ie the board is in two pieces with each pieces folded again) We believe this is how the game was sold as the box is made to hold the board (in depth) but the board could not be folded in four to fit as it is made of thick strong card, so needs to be in two seperate pieces.


A Voyage through the Clouds - Condition - Board is very good - no damage / Six metal pieces on stand are also very good / Rules - inside box lid in German (but a photocopy of English rules could be provided on request / Box - Slightly scuffed and light damage at corners/edges - missing part of one side
Postage
/ UK 1st Class £6.00 / European £7.50 / Worldwide £9.50

A very pretty and interesting games board produced first in 1909 (this may be a little later as there are card playing pieces rather than the normal metal which might indicate a metal shortage due to WWI)
