Greyhound Racing Game Instruction Leaflet 1926
Carreras Dogs and Pets Greyhound Racing Game Instruction Leaflet 1926 Greyhound Racing Game Instruction Leaflet 1926 L1 - This leaflet was produced in connection with a set of L52 Greyhound Racing Game cards (see website for availability) and give instructions on how to play the game. The cards included 15 whips, 16 obstacles, 10 dogs, 10 greyhound (single and groups) and 1 hare. These days hare coursing is rare and rightly so, but obviously in the 1920s this was not the case as the card set was all about chasing the hare. The basic premise of the game is that as soon as the hare card is played the first player to play a single greyhound card is the winner. When scoring the winner is awarded points for cards in the losers’ hands i.e 5 points for each single greyhound, 1 for each obstacle card etc. When opened flat the leaflet is size 88 x 89mm

Morris Dogs and Pets Racing Greyhounds 1939 Racing Greyhounds 1939 25 - We think this set was issued just before the Second World War broke out because the last reference in the text is to the withdrawal of one of the runners from the 1939 Greyhound Derby which had taken place in June that year. Greyhound racing in the 1920s and ‘30s had a huge following and that is reflected in the number of sets issued by manufacturers at the time, but this set was produced by the London firm of B. Morris under the brand title “Forecasta”. The cards picture top-class greyhounds born from 1935 to 1937, whilst the informative texts give their pedigree, owner, trainer, track and prize record etc. Greyhound racing was clearly a serious business if the amount of money involved is any example. For example, Ballyhennessy Sandhills on card 2 won more than £4,800 in just three races, which was a fortune in those days. Alas there is no longer dog-racing at White City and most of the other tracks around the country have also gone, but these fine animals will bring back memories for many. Cards size 64 x 38mm.
