Crazy Faces

Earlier this month I posted the vintage Dandy Candy card game set (there's a few more vintage card games in the AEET archive too if you look around a little), and here's another one with super fun, colorful illustrations, released by E. E. Fairchild Corp, Rochester, N.Y. sometime in the 50's or 60's. I really love the indian and the drunken clown, but nothing beats that wacky witch and her awesome shrieking cat! I also included directions for the 4 separate games at the very bottom. GO CRAZY!!

wow - these are so great. i totally want to make a set of them (doll house size or smaller!)!

i think i like the jack-o-lantern guy the best -but i'm pretty partial to them in general. and the pirate guy is great - esp since he looks like a cab driver who just put on a halloween costume or something.

OK, how many of each of these make a full deck. I didn't bother to read all four sets of instructions this time and try to make a guess (I figured it would be easier to ask).

Karswell said...

Yep, 4 each for this set too

KL from NYC said...

Thank you for both answers.

Karswell said...

My pleasure! You may also want to check my archive for MIXIES and CRAZY EIGHTS, both of those are great too.

I've seen that caterpillar somewhere in the past, now I know where! They're all great, but ESPECIALLY the caterpillar.

I'm glad to see someone give that bug some love-- he's too weird and wonderful to ignore!
