Children’s Card Games (52)

Our last specimen of the venerable game of “Hearts” is a deck currently on sale in toy stores.  It tells us no date or publisher, only that it was made in China.

Most “Hearts” decks have four suits; this one, for some reason, has only three: clovers, hearts, and horseshoes.  The 9 of stars, the jinx, is the only star card.  The fox is dapper; his paws are odd; one ear is redder.

    he looks like he ran into a glass door….his whiskers are all knarled up; he’s a bit asthmatic.
