A simple game where two cards are paired to make either a "correct" character or a "crazy" character, both correct and crazy characters score equally, see rules card below.


The same format as Punch and Judy. An economy game with smaller cards than usual. The only "branding" is the "A Pepys Game" device on the box front, no mention of Castell Brothers and no address is given.


The illustrator was Neville Main whose initials can be seen in the bottom right hand corner of the title card.
