Gambling game

This is a simple but cleverly designed game. There is a cardboard disk which rattles around inside the outer case. When the game is tilted, the disk appears in the middle of the numbered circle. The pointer on the disk will show the player’s ‘selected’ number. Any number of rules could be used – for example the person with the highest number wins. Made in Germany. There is a sample number 55/A on the back of the game but the manufacturer is not known.
