  • Possibly the edition of the game manufactured in 1801. This edition contains additional hidden game boards (one small musical game board and a double sided backgammon/checkers board) that the 1803 edition lacks. The main game boards are painted (not engraved) and this was a more expensive production.
  • Title and publication information from 1803 edition of the Musical game.
