Legend says that Captain Cook played this game nightly to relax with his fellow shipmates. In fact, he spent so much time playing the game, it came to be known as the Captain's Mistress. 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.
