Anybody seen or own any Biggles jigsaws from the 1950's? This one reminds me of the cover of Takes Charge I think [bit pricey, AND one piece is missing!]:

I wonder how many there were?

There were four that I know of - I've got pictures of them all completed that I'll post soon. I've got one of them, called 'Attack'. If you look at the photos in the Collections thread, it's in the top photo, bottom shelf, on the left.

Excellent! I will check it out...I believe there is also some 1950's card game that occasionally shows up on the internet for sale too?

I used to have that as a kid, goodness knows what happened to it, always easy to be wise after the event.

Peyps did a card game. I have a copy at home. They are fairly common or at least the were a couple of years ago. It was a 'trumps' based game in the same vein as their Dan Dare game.

Here you go. I've got the last jigsaw - the plane. I've got the card game as well - in my photos, it's in the third one, top shelf, on top of the books. The pictures on the cards are all taken from Stead illustrations, so they're good to look at. Here's a link to give you an idea: http://www.vintagetoysgames.co.uk/biggl ... _game.html

And here's some info on other stuff from the YABS site: http://yabs.isambard.com.au/misc-games.php
Of what they've got listed there, I've also got The Secret Nightflyer Game (based on Dark Intruder), The Hidden Blueprints Game (based on In the Blue) (Just down from the jigsaw in my photos, you can just see the dice in front of one of them) and the Secret Agent Party Game (2nd photo, bottom shelf, second from the right).
