Wonderful card game, called “Lincard,” made by Universal for John William Wolf who conceived, invented and designed the game. The World of Playing Cards website describes the game with these words:
“Lincard was invented by John William Wolf and patented in 1937. The game consists of a custom 49-card deck and the object is to play cards so that they link to other cards of the same suit, . . . Cards contain miniature representations of standard English playing cards along with extra graphics relating to the way this game is played.”
The card set with this game is still sealed in its wrapper. However, the WoPC website includes excellent photos of the cards and their unique design. The cards are accompanied by a booklet that describes how the game is played. The cards are bridge size, and, with the booklet, are housed in the original “padded” box; the box has a drop down side.
As noted, the cards are mint and sealed in a wrapper. The booklet is in excellent condition, lightly used if at all. The box is also in excellent condition, with minor shelf wear at the edges.
Thanks for visiting.
