Seized from its Jewish owners in Germany during the war, Spear's Games was handed back to Richard Spear, who had fled to England, in 1946 and its Enfield factory became its main headquarters. This comprehensive, highly illustrated history of the company, produced by the Nuremberg Toy Museum, includes a report on the takeover by Mattel in 1994; essays on game-playing and the toy-making centre of Nuremberg; and photographs of many of its best-known games including Scrabble.
