This game dates from 1937, and is similar in a way to pick-up sticks. The box measures 8 1/2" x 2" and includes 18 Nobby Sticks. The box I have appears to be missing 3 sticks, as the instructions indicate there should be 21. I do not have the original instructions for the game, but was able to locate a copy, which I will include for you.
The box also included two green tongue depressor sticks, one with a magnet. This is not part of Nobby Sticks, but appears to be another game, possibly home made. They will be included, too.
