This edition is not easy to find. Each sheet is provided with a speech cloud and shows instructions of the game that may be played. This folio contains 14 black and white prints, of which 7 different prints colored-in by the artist, i.e. 2 of each print. Two hundred signed and numbered copies were planned but ONLY circa 20 were made by Takako Saito and sold (hence an early number from the edition). The game was designed to be played with other objects or pieces, as stated in Saito’s notes.
