Jammie Dodg’ems Game
A wonderful example of promotional ephemera that’s also a jolly good game
Shortly after launching Jenga in 1983, and long before founding Oxford Games, Leslie Scott was invited by Burton’s Biscuits to devise a promotional product for its most famous biscuits, Jammie Dodgers. She and Sara Finch came up with the Jammie Dodg’ems Game. Collect some Jammie Dodger biscuit wrappers, and you could send away for a free copy of this exclusive family game. The promotion ran for a few months, following which the game was no longer available. Almost thirty years on, it’s anybody’s guess how many older Jammie Dodger fans have this game tucked away in a cupboard somewhere. So we were rather excited to rediscover a stash of 20 or so games in the Oxford Games’ archives, which we are offering now from our Vintage Collection. And even more delighted to rediscover that, not only is it a fascinating example of promotional ephemera but, also, it’s a jolly good game!
