Children’s Card Games (44)

January 30th, 2009 · 2 Comments


The Ariston company, in Detmold (Germany), was responsible for “Märchenquartett” (“Fairy Tale Quartet”), one of many games that requires its players to assemble four scenes from a folktale.  I’ve chosen a lively vignette from that perennial favorite, “The Frog King.”  His Majesty is obviously the life of the party.

    Seeing it right after the digital tampon, dancing around excitedly amongst the ladies, gives me strange images.

    the ladies seemed gasping with excitement at the leaping lad. The king at the head of the table seems jealous. Froggy is definitely going “a courtin” with this crowd.
