A classic Victorian card game first published in 1905, Old Maid was derived from an ancient gambling game where the loser pays for the drinks - how's that! The game spawns an element of bluffing, commonly used on poker.
Following shuffling and dealing, players discard card doubles within the hand. Beginning with the dealer, each person takes turns offering their hand face-down to the player on the left. That player selects a random card and adds it to their hand. If the selected card makes a pair, it is discarded face-up on the table. The game continues in such a manner until the cards have run out and one player is left holding the Old Maid!
This beautiful deck is a great classic game, perfect for family holidays, rainy afternoons, or if you really wanted to be traditional - the pub!
21 beautifully illustrated characters, as part of a 52 card deck.
