“Makin’ Groceries” was published in New Orleans in 1987, by Mel-Mar Productions. All of the cards represent local brands of food: ice cream, crab boil, red beans, potato chips, etc. The players compete to match and accumulate groceries. As the instruction card says, “We have chosen some of Louisiana’s finest and most original food products that best typify the unique quality and character of the State’s prominent food industry.” It’s essentially a collection of ads; but I like its cheerful regionalism and oddball art.
