Bielefelder “Schwarzer Peter” (“Black Peter”) Card Game, c.1970s

Excellent set of “Schwarzer Peter” (“Black Peter”) cards made by Bielefelder Spielkarten GMBH. “Black Peter” is a German game similar to “Old Maid.” These cards are described at the University of Waterloo’s Elliott Avedon Virtual Museum of Games, and are dated there c.1970s.

The set consists of 25 total cards – the “Black Peter” card (a chimney sweep), 12 pairs of cards showing occupations, an instruction card in German, and a title card. The cards are slightly large bridge size, measuring 91mm x 59mm, and come in the original plastic box.

The cards are in excellent condition, lightly used if at all. I note that there is a goldish tint on the "Black Peter" card, near his right foot next to the chimney; because it is on both the "Black Peter" card and the title card, I am inclined to think that it is intended, that the cards were made that way. The box is slightly clouded with very light occasional scratches, but is otherwise without issues.

Thanks for visiting.
