Description
"J'ai Toujours Ma Boule." Nouveau Tue-Boches. An unusual game, dating to the First World War, in which the aim is to launch a ball at five chromolithographed wooden heads representing the "Boche" (or Germans) and the leaders of the other Central Powers, consisting of Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire, with the goal of knocking the heads over to reveal the word "Kamerad!" printed to the base of each figure. The game was produced by Perplexité in Paris, circa 1916. This collection holds the game's complete set of original pieces and equipment.
