Two or more players (up to twelve) may 302,291, and. in Switzerland August 10, 1928. I

take part inthe game. The rules of the game are'the following:

A leader is chosen amongst the players who displays the game board and covers the twelve panels of the center field orpeace picture 2 by means of the twelve weapon cards 7, placmg on every panel a weapon card with the v in equal numbers amongst the players and the game may be started. The aimof the game is to displace the weapon cards 7, which cover the peace panel or picture 2, according to the rules of the game and thus to assist in thevictory of peace over war. By this game the players get acquainted with the advantages of peace and the disadvantages of war by reading the motto printed on the respective cards which should always be read in a loud voice. At the same time the players get acquained'with the insignia in the flags of the various nations and are induced to think internationally.

- Every player holds the cards arranged in order in his hand but in such a manner that they cannot be seen by the other players. Whoever has got the card 9 amongst his batch has to announce it and places this card openly on the table before him. He is given three flags by the head player in order toplant them on his block 11, as well as three counters done consecutively. Therefore, only after one 7 war panel or picture i has been. covered by three weapon cards 7 it is allowed to begin covering of the second war. panel or picture 4. In the end all of the four war panels or pictures 4% must be covered with three weapon cards 7 each with their picture face downward order to exhibit the peace picture 2 new en tirely free from war, in the centre of which the block 11 provided with flags of the winner batch b readin the motto im 31l1'll38d on the war card 5 to be handed over in aloud voice; hereafter he againeddresses the same neighhour by saying: i: desire peace. This neighbour is now obliged to consent to this wish and to remit a peace card 6 "from his batch to the petitioner. hl ow, the petitioner also reads the motto imprintedon this peace card 6 in a loud voicc,-he deposits it among the Fax cards 9 and receives from the head player a further flag and av counter from the cash. Now, the neighbour to the right begins to play by throwing the die. Assuming that he again throws one of the faces mentioned above the same game is repeated. If one of the players throws Pair, the Pax card 9 together with the batch of peace cards 6 put down with it go to him, he receives three flags 10, three counters 12, is entitled to remove one of the weapon cards 7 and to cover a war picture 4 with it, whereupon his neighbour to the right begins to play.

If however, one of the players throws Belluni, the player which has held the Bellum card 8 secretly in his batch is entitled to hand the same to the player which has thrown Bellum. The latter gives a flag 10 back to the 1 head player and pays up one counter 12to the cash.- Then, he is obliged to deposit a war card 5 from his batch under the Bellum card 8 by reading ofi? its motto. From now on, that is to say as soon as the Bellum card is displayed all war cards 5, exactly in the same I way as for the ?ax card 9, must be deposited underneath the Bellum card 8.' The latter also, the'same as the Pan card 9 changes its owner upon the unlucky throwing of Bellum, whereupon this player has to pay the fine as mentioned before,

It may also happen that one of thepartners in the game is unable to comply with the request of a petitioner for a peace card 6 in that he only holds war cards 5 inhis batch. He then must remit a flag 10 to the petitioner and pay one counter 12 whereupon the batch of Bellum cards goes to him.

If on the contrary one of the players should be unable to remit a war card 5 to a petitioner for the Bellum hatch as he holds but peace cards 6,- this lucky player is given the same reward as it he had throw Pa-X viz three flags, three counters, the right to remove one weapon card and to cover a war panel orvpictu're therewith and besides he is entitled to the batch of Pan cards. Whoever is the owner he will be appointed head player. He plants his block in the centre or" the play board and the otherblocks 11 with the flags thereon are grouped around it along the edge or the game vhoard 1, whereby anice looking final .efiect is obtained.
