British Wild Birds - Box Front


British Wild Birds is one of the Pepys games that Gibsons retained when they took over the brand in 1984. Unlike the Pepys versions the game is called "British Wild Birds" rather than just "British Birds", however the original name is retained on the box top, back and rules. The card backs and the faces are the same.


There may have been later editions of the game featuring a Barcode and other differences. If found, examples will be added to this page.


This 1984 pack was part of Rex Pitts' collection.


To compare the Gibsons version with the original Pepys editions and view all the cards see the page here.
