Games CompendiumsGames lovers CAN have it all — with Games Compendiums from Jaques of London, the world’s leading games manufacturer and inventor of Croquet and Ping Pong, among other games. Now, indoor games fans can spend a whole week of rainy days enjoying non-stop fun. Jaques’s various Games Compendiums include up to seven games, in one collection.
Games Compendiums instantly turn parties, family events, long trips or nights at home into festivals of fun. One Compendium, held in a lovely mahogany case, includes two family-pleasing card games Jaques invented in the 1880s, Happy Families and Snap. Sir John Tenniel, the artist for Lewis Carroll’s famous “Alice in Wonderland” novel, created the funny card illustrations. Or, step up to the deluxe Grand Black Walnut version with a hinged lid.
That’s just a couple Games Compendiums options! The Shut the Box game set – which includes handsome Jaques playing cards and two sets of dice, equally stylishly boxed – is great at teaching kids numbers and mathematics. Want still more games?
Serious game lovers and smart parents will choose either the stunning, handmade Deluxe or Master Games Compendiums, perfect seven-game gifts. Games include Checkers, Chess, Dominoes, Bridge, Cribbage, Backgammon, Poker sets and Snap. Both sizes include inlaid multi-game playing board lids, richly designed playing pieces, and glorious packaging.
