Little Grey Rabbit is one of the games that Gibsons retained when they took over Pepys brand in 1984.


The cards in the first Gibsons edition are the same as the 3rd edition of the original Pepys game but with darker blue backs. In subsequent editions Gibsons added a white border to the face of the cards and lightened the shade of blue on the backs.
