MUSEUM DISPLAYS  

Games and Puzzles 
Museum Exhibit
 
We are proud to host displays by Leicestershire Museum Services. 
 
Here is a selection of games and puzzles dating from the 19th and 20th centuries from Leicestershire County Council’s Museum collections. 
 
The oldest items in the display are the 18th or early 19th century mother-of-pearl fish game counters. Fish counters like these were mentioned in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice when Lydia Bennett complains of the fish she has lost and won while playing a games called ‘Lottery’. 
 
Be prepared to be amazed!
