is the CC version happy families game that Teleguide Editions release
in the end 70's... ^_^
game is in actual size. You only need to print the pictures on some
thick paper, then to cut them out
in order to entertain our beloved little ones....
From 2 to 4 players.
idea of the game is to collect whole families.
The dealer deals 6 cards to each player (8 each for 2 players). The
remaining cards are placed face
down to form a stock.
player to dealer's left starts. A turn consists of asking a specific
player for a specific card from a
family. For example, if it is my turn I might say: 'Mary, Blue family:
please, can I have the mother?
The player who asks must already hold at least one card of the
requested family, so I must hold at
least one card from the blue family to say this. If the player who was
asked (Mary) has the right card
in her deck (the mother from the Blue family in this case), she must
give it to the player who asked for
it. That player then gets another turn and may again ask any player for
any card already held by the
the person asked does not have the right card, she says “pick a card!”.
The asker must then draw
the top card of the undealt stock. If the drawn card is the one asked
for, the asker shows it and says
“lucky dip” and gets another turn. If the drawn card is not the one
asked for, the asker keeps it, but
the turn now passes to the next player.
soon as a player collects a book of 4 (6) cards of the same family, he
must say “happy family”.
The cards must be shown and then placed face down. The game continues
until either someone has
no cards left in hands or the stock runs out. The winner is the player
who then has the most families.
play now!... ^_^
