Captains Mistress Cultural Classics Edition
This edition of Captain's Mistress is one of the finest iterations available and perfect for gift-giving or coffee table display. Captain's Mistress is the predecessor to the perennial favorite 4 in a Row game that originated over 500 years ago in England. According to legend, the famous British sailor Captain Cook played this game with his fellow shipmates on all three of his major voyages.
In fact, Cook spent so much time playing the game, it actually came to be known as the "captain's mistress." The object of Captain's Mistress is simple, yet the strategies are limitless. Players try to line up their round in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. The first player to do so wins the game. The game includes a solid wooden box, 42 solid glass marbles to be used as playing pieces, a wooden plan, and a history booklet/rulebook. For ages 14 years and up.
