Online Auction Description

I am always surprised when I stumble across a lot like this one. These are very cheaply made Card game sets from the 1950's and made in Hong Kong.

The lot includes 5 small sized games where they are only 1.5" or so and printed on plain paper. The text on the instruction card is poorly translated and so small I needed a magnifying glass to read. They would have been un-shuffle-able and nearly impossible for small hands to use. They all appear complete and unused as there are no creases and they were "in order" within the boxes. Nothing is branded and they share similar graphics style and printing. Looks almost like they are watercolors and there is some bleed from the cards to the inside of the boxes.

Small Card Games Include:

  • Old Maid; 18 Pairs of Matches of mostly career represented people, mostly men, and then a single Old Maid and instruction card

  • Donkey: Similar game play where the matches are all animals, barnyard and wild, and the Donkey is the poison card. Instructions tell you to call the loser a Donkey

  • Snap; classic game that features sets of 4 characters from Nursery Rhymes

  • Animal Snap; classic snap game that features sets of animals with catchy names. Noticed that the Squirrel and Billy Goat each have 5 cards where the others only 4. My guess is that it was because of the size of the print sheet having 2 extra slots. Also interesting is the Jim Crow character from a foreign manufacturer

  • Happy Families; another classic matching game which features 4 cards of an "standard" family; 2 parents and boy/girl. Combines alphabet on card to help with the match

Finally there is the more standard sized Old Maid game. 20 pairs for matching and the single Old Maid card. Interesting how the graphic on the card does not match the one used on the box. Dare I suggest it resembles a frumpy British Regal, Queen perhaps?

Old Maid has one version that is Full Size, all other games are small and only printed on paper, hard to think ever played with
