There is a legend that on three major voyages, Captain Cook used this game nightly to relax with his fellow shipmates including the 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 seem endless. Players try to line up four of their hardwood 'rounds' in a row, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The cabinet is beautifully constructed, with brass fittings, burl wood inlay on top, mitered joints and a lustrous, stained finish. At the game's end, pull the bottom retaining 'gangplank' and the hardwood 'rounds' drop back into the cabinet.
