Children’s Card Games (182)

September 6th, 2012 · 3 Comments


“Slap Jack” is one of those enduring children’s games that seem to quietly survive under the radar.  Of course, you can play it with a normal deck; but you may as well let a designer have fun with it.  This 1965 Whitman version uses paisley and other patterns for most of the deck, and a rather dressy chimp for the Jack.  The cards with the older Jacks are a nice touch.
