Produced in 1985 by Jouets Grand, Ltd., of Dorval, Quebec in Canada, the NHL Hockey Card Game is all about using the real strategies of hockey to obtain possession of the puck and score the most goals to beat the opposing team. Written in both French and English, the rules explain how this objective is achieved playing certain cards. One player (or team) represents the Montreal Canadiens, and the other plays for the Quebec Nordiques.
The game contains:
- Two decks of 61 hockey playing cards,
- One three-compartment playing tray,
- Four player card charts,
- A scoring pad; and,
- A set of instructions (in both French and English).
This NHL Hockey Card Game is in great vintage condition. The box cover has a beautifully colored image of a hockey player, and the box has minimal edge and corner wear due to age. The inner plastic aqua-colored playing tray has neither cracks nor chips. Both decks of the hockey playing cards are also in great condition, free of creases, tears and frayed edges. The player card charts are a bit yellowed due to age. Please review all accompanying photographs for product condition issues.
NHL Hockey Card Game is a very rare game to find, as it is no longer produced by Jouets Grand of Quebec. So, this card game would make for a great addition to a vintage game and toy collection. However, the card game would make for a wonderful gift for that special person in your life who just loves anything to do with hockey — which just may happen to be you!
