Some of the best-loved children’s card games ever invented, all uniquely and beautifully illustrated so each card is an individual work of art.

Happy Families – a traditional British card game usually with a specially made set of picture cards, featuring illustrations of fictional families of four, most often based on occupation types. The object of the game is to collect complete families.

Memory Match – Shuffle the cards well and spread them face down across the table. Players take turns to turn over two cards, searching for a matching pair. If the cards match the player keeps the cards and continues their turn until they do not make a match.

Old Maid  – Each player removes all pairs from his hand face down. If a player has three-of-a-kind, they remove only two of those three cards. The dealer then offers their hand, spread out face down, to the player on the left, who draws one card from it. This player discards any pair that may have been formed by the drawn card. The player then offers their own hand to the player on their left. Play proceeds in this way until all cards have been paired except one – the odd queen, which cannot be paired – and the player who has that card is the Old Maid!

Animal Snap – The player on the dealer’s left turns over the top card of his pile and puts it face up starting a pile of cards next to their face down cards. The next player to the left does the same and so on around the table.

When someone turns up a card that matches a card already face up on another player’s pile, the first person to notice the two matched cards calls out “Snap!” and wins both piles. This player adds the cards to the bottom of their face-down pile.

When two players shout “Snap!” at the same time, the two piles are combined and placed in the center of the table face up. These cards form a “Snap Pot.” Play continues where it left off with the player to the left of the last player who turned over a card. If a player spots a card that matches the card on top of the Snap Pot, they shout “Snap Pot!” and win all of those cards. During the game, if a player runs out of cards in their face-down pile, the cards in the face up pile are turned down and the player continues to play.
