The Eyeless Dude game

The eyeless dude game, a Victorian version of ‘Pin the tail on the donkey’, 1897 (COPY 1/136 f.413)


The New and Amusing Game of The Eyeless Dude!


Pin this Sheet up against the wall. Each player in turn stands about three yards away and, after being blind folded, walks slowly towards the Face, and endeavours to pin one Eye in its place, then turns round and pins the other eye in its place, turning round once more he then completes the Face by pinning on the Moustache. Cut this strip off, paste on card board, then cut each out. Stick a pin through each eye and another through the centre at the top of the moustache.
