I saw your post on the newbie board and I've been reading your interesting posts here too!
Would you happen to know how someone might go about having an old board game restored? I have one that is about a hundred years old (so Victorian era, not Regency) which belonged to my grandma's family. It is still easy to read but in need of preservation. It is called "The Prince's Quest" (it's for children), and you have to move the little wooden tokens along various paths to get through an enchanted forest.
Also, were there such things as board games during the Regency? I understood from a children's literature class that I took that more books and such were created especially for children during the Victorian era, but that they were virtually ignored before. I presume the jigsaws you like would be for adults?
