Kum-Bak Sports, Toys & Games

Kum-Bak letterhead from the mid 1930s

Kum-Bak card games include: “Jack of all Trades”, “Market” or “Covent Garden”, “Run-It-Out” or “Card Cricket”, “Non-Revoke” playing cards and a Kum–Bak edition of “Kargo”. There was also a Games Compendium. Their card games were acquired by Pepys in around 1936 but the company continued producing indoor and outdoor games, such as “Kum-Bak” which was a ball on a long piece of elastic attached to a post driven into the ground which you hit with a bat alternately with a partner.
