Antique French Nain Jaune (Yellow Dwarf) board/ card game from the turn of the century. This gorgeous game is comprised of one game board box, five individual compartments and seven slots containing over one hundred celluloid game pieces. This is a very heavy game packaged in three layers within solid wood box. The lid slides out to reveal the contents. French instructions on game play are printed on the inside lid.
This game is in very good condition for its age, from the box graphics to the inner components. The game pieces have obviously been used and show signs of it. The internal graphics have dirtied slightly over time, but still appear bright, clean and legible. The outer box has some imperfections, but has done its job of protecting the inner contents for a full century. See photos.
A description of the game from its Wikipedia article:
The game of Nain Jaune or Yellow Dwarf, also formerly called Lindor, is an "attractive and unique traditional French card game, using a board comprising five compartments or boxes. It is a reasoned game of chance because it combines the hazards of card distribution with the strategy of building suits. Nain Jaune, which is considered a classic French game, is named after the seven of diamonds, which is depicted as a yellow dwarf in the centre of the game board.
