[Centsprent/ catchpenny print, games, spel, lithography] (The game of Arlequin), published ca. 1900

Board game. In the middle a harlequin holding open a bag with the number 7. In the circular frame around him medallions with numbers from 2 to 12.

Untitled, without any further references.

“The Game of Seven is known under many different names, with different imagery to correspond. The Game of Harlequin, looks perfectly innocuous, though the game itself is not. Here, the special rules for the throws of two or twelve are not recognised and they are treated as ordinary numbers, so that there is no quick finish to the game. The throw of seven causes money to accumulate on the central figure of Harlequin, in the usual way, but the rules say that the game continues until every player except one is completely out of money, when the last man standing takes everything. A special rule says that when a player runs out of money, one last throw is allowed for free, after which the player must leave the game.” (from the website giochidelloca.it)
