Late 1950s, early 1960s. The box presented here is therefore more than 50 years old. Unbelievable: this game is still manufactured, practically unchanged (is the quality still the same? Well, according to some comments on a website, it seems that the answer is “no” unfortunately, not to mention the superb wooden box become a simple cardboard suitcase!) The plastic parts, doors and windows, greatly suffered, and I modified some pieces of wood to vary the constructions (I could not help…). The tile staples were also a weak point. The original box, the instructions and of course the parts are still there in 2014.
