'DOVER PATROL' BOARD GAME: The object of the game is to seize the flag of the opposing fleet and convey it to one's own base; but a player cannot deposit the enemy flag on his base unless his own is in his possession and on his side of the board.
The game is fully complete and in astonishing condition given that it is now over 90 years old. The game box is in very good condition indeed: bearing only minor signs of wear, it has completey retained its integrity and shape without any use of sellotape and the picture on the lid is completely free from rips or tearing of any sort. The game board is in excellent condition. It sits perfectly flat and the spine is fully intact; it looks barely used if used at all. Likewise, every one of the 80 playing pieces is in excellent condition: not one of them is torn or marked, the writing on each piece is perfectly legible and the colours on the reverse are vibrant and clear. Every metal stand is present and, as you would expect, tarnished with age yet none are bent or broken. The rule booklet is fully complete and, again, in remarkably good condition given its age.
This is a spectacular example of a very early version of a board game classic that is bound to impress.
