What can you tell me about this Jokerboul?

Postby pedroofn19 » Sat Jun 27, 2020 3:31 pm

As the title says, what can anyone tell me about this Jokerboul machine? I know it's French, 1936, made by Courson. I can't find much about the maker, except that he only made two machines.
How is it played? How many balls should it have? What is the approximate value?
Thanks guys.

Hello,
The real name of the creator of this machine is Courtot and not Courson.
Here's the French patent of your machine, hope that can help you but this document is..... in French (hope you have no allergy!).

After the patent, the rules of the game in....... French.
You win if the marbles are placed, as explained in the rules (the joker card replaces any other card).

It says Courson on the plate, on the side of the machine. Is that not the maker then?
Any other info I can find says it is made by Courson.

Hello, I think that Courson is the company that had the exploitation of the machine (not the manufacturer or the creator) : the machine was let in the pub / bar / bistrot and Courson take a % of the gain, he repaired, etc.
You can read "propriété insaisissable" that mean if the bistrot close or in justice, Courson can retake his machine.
We have lot of case where on the machine there are a name that doesn't link to the manufacturer or creator.
Hope my explanation in English.was clear?
