The game is played with two dice. The players have to put a token on the number rolled with the dice. Number seven is the pot, and the players who roll seven leave their token there, meaning that throughout the game more tokens stay in the pot. The person who is the last to have tokens left wins. The rules are explained at the bottom of the print.Schaarbeek, Hemeleers & Van Houter (1827 - 1894), numbered ‘95’ in the upper right corner.l Woodcut illustration (310 x 250 mm) on paper; hand coloured in yellow, red and blue; text under image in letterpress; total: 390 x 315 mm; paper in good condition.Meyer p. 164, Boerma p. 760 (Hemeleers 95).
