Product Description:

Published by Castell Brothers Ltd. (“Makers of Pepys Stationery”) of London comes this 1950s edition of Belisha, a road travel game for two or more players. This rummy-like card game was produced “with a sincere desire to make a helpful contribution to {Britain’s} Safety First campaign. The game has been carefully designed to stimulate road consciousness, especially among young people.” How well this British national goal was assisted by the Belisha card game remains unknown; nonetheless, it is a beautifully designed and colored card game.

This gamesis fully complete with all 52 cards and a joker. The cards are in great shape, with only one card having a crease. An eight-page rules booklet accompanies the deck of cards; the booklet shows some signs of discoloration and has been folded in half. The game box is almost intact, showing shelf wear and minor splits. There is an aged and faded hand-written gift greeting on one side panel of the box that only adds to the vintage charm. A few minor pencil makes appears on the front panel as well. Please, review all accompanying photographs for product conditions.

Pepys Series card games were very popular among citizens of the United Kingdom and have, in time, become very collectible both there and here in the United States. So, if you’re a collector of Pepys card games, Belisha, with its focus on promoting road safety, would make for a fun addition. But, it’s also a great card game for an evening of family entertainment.
