GAMES & QUARTETS
Published since ca. 1913. Printed in litho, later offset. There
are 50 cards and they measure 45 x 69 mm and 42 x 63 mm.
Published by S.N., later also SIO (Sioliet).
There are 5 series of 10 cards, patroles. The series are Lions, Wolves, Bulls, Owls, and Ruffs, each printed in a different colour, and they contain 1 leader (with flag) and 9 scouts.
||The lion patrol was done in orange. Perhaps because our royal family is called Van Oranje (Orange) and their emblem shows two lions.|
|This is the oldest version. The deck is in the old Dutch language (pre 1936). The word "patroulle" was misspelled and was changed to the correct "patrouille" in a later edition.||
|Later editions were sold in a transparant plastic box. The game was sold until the factory had to close down.|
Correction of the misspelled word for patrol.
||The back design has never been changed.|
The older decks come in carton boxes, after ca. 1960 the game comes in a plastic box. Obviously there has been a small change in names too. The box is from an edition from ca. 1940, but the rules book (enlarged in the scan here below) is from a much earlier edition. Note the extra (plural) "s" in the name of the game.
