Product description

Pepys "It Pays To Advertise" retro vintage advertisement-themed party game in original box
 
A lovely original retro vintage "It Pays To Advertise" advertising-themed party game, from the "Pepys Party Games" series by Castell Brothers Ltd., London. The game comprises twelve single-sided cards (three matching sets of four) with questions relating to advertisements from around 1960 (including the ill-fated Strand Cigarettes commercial of 1959), plus an instruction / answer sheet with list of Pepys Party Games to the reverse; the original box has an amusing lid design in red, black and white with imaginary advertisements - including a parody of the Milk Marketing Board slogan "Drinka Pinta Milka Day"!
 
Although this genuine vintage game shows some signs of its age (see condition description below), it remains in generally good order, and as such would make a great addition to a collection of vintage party games - or  else could be used as a display accessory for a recreation of a late 1950s or early 1960s period room setting.
