There is a very good feature on this game, with a rare colour advert from 1939 and an example of the Shuffled Symphonies comic strip from Mickey Mouse Weekly, written by Rex Pitts on World of Playing Cards.


The game was published anonymously but is clearly by Pepys and was promoted alongside at least one other Pepys game.


The small leaflet to the right was included in some packs of Snow White, a game proudly published as a "Pepys Series" game by Castell Brothers.


Pears Soap's Shuffled Symphonies promotion capitalises on the proven success they had recently enjoyed with a similar promotion for Pepys' Snow White.


On the back of Shuffled Symphonies' rule book there is also an illustrated advert for Pears Soap featuring Snow White.
