My Dad(now deceased)invented this game! I still think nothing matches it for board games. My sisters and I must have played it countless times when we were kid's. My youngest sister entered into a playing competition held at Myer Melbourne store and won it! She surprised many of the fellow male commpetitors at her deft skills. From memory it was first published around 1969. Murfett ceased publication around 1974 citing 'electronic games' were all the rage. I reckon they lost the plot as it still holds it's own these days.
