Description

Word Mastermind the best selling game in the world.

The gentleman on the box is Mr Bill Woodward who was my best friends father, he died few years ago and I went to his funeral, he was a lovely distinguished gentleman who will fondly be remembered:

HIS STORY:

A businessman and a University of Leicester student who were brought together 30 years ago as the mysterious figures for the box on the revolutionary new game Mastermind, have been reunited for the first time since that historic day.

Distinguished-looking Bill Woodward was then the owner of a chain of hairdressing salons and young Hong Kong born Cecilia Fung was studying for a computer science degree at the University of Leicester.

Little did they know that the photo session at Leicester studio would produce a result which was destined to cut across all international barriers and become one of the world’s most famous and enduring images.

Bill Woodward was catapulted into global recognition as he went on many promotional tours for the game – in fact even his passport was under the name Mr Mastermind!

He discloses some of his secrets behind the photo-shoot including the fact that he was called upon to sit in only after a male model, originally booked, failed to turn up.


Made by Invicta.

The pegs are still intact in the packaging...so this game is unused....this version of mastermind is now very collectible...

approx 12.5 inches long x 5.25 wide x 1.25 depth.

weighs 254 grams

Shipping policies

I aim to ship out to you within 2 days using a service that will get the item safely to you within 10 to 14 days. (sometimes 3 days by courier)

I use Transglobal who will compare competitive postage prices.

If you would like insurance and tracking for your order, please send me a message before making your purchase and I will send you a revised invoice. But please be aware that this is slightly more expensive but will give you peace of mind.

Regrettably, I cannot be held responsible for any losses or damages to items whilst they are in the hands of the postal services.

I package the items up securely and will offer to put in a claim to The Royal Mail if your item gets lost or damaged, for lost items 1 month has to have passed, I always keep proof of postage and will provide this if requested.

I do hope that, if there are any problems however, we can find an amicable solution.
