There is a persistent legend that on this three major voyages, Captain Cook used this game nightly to relax with his fellow shipmates... naturalist Sir Joseph Banks and botanist Daniel Solander. Cook spent so much time playing the game, it came to be known as The Captain's Mistress Game. The object of the game is simple, yet the strategies are endless. Players try to line up four of their hardwood "rounds" in a row, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. the cabinet is beautifully made, with brass fittings, burlwood inlay on top, mitered joints and a lustrous, stained finish. At game's end, pull the bottom retaining "gangplank" and the hardwood "rounds" drop back into the cabinet.
