 This is a hard one!  My usual tactic of searching with Google for information on the ones I don't know has been well....tougher than a game of 52 card pick-up.

This one is a real challenge!

Dave selected the cards and I composed (and took) the photo.

He didn't give me tha answer key, so I tried it myself and consider myself very lucky to have found 32/40.

Happy hunting...

 I'll be curious to see how people search for the cards they don't know.  Dice images were a lot easier to find and then trace to a game.  Cards not so much... (at least so far)

 32?!?  I'm in trouble.  Off the start I own 1 and recognized another 2.  After a few hours (yes hours) of research, I'm at 17.

 You are doing well.  I don't think I'll have enough time by the deadline to get even that far.  Once the contest is over I'd love to hear how you approached the search.

So I took out the pic at game club - no one was able to add more to my list :(

We did get to play one of the games on the list (though it was one I had already figured out)

Yeah, I got to about half of them (I think) just on the first look.  A couple others kind of look familiar, but I don't know them for sure.  Very well done.

Most of these I'd never even heard of - haha.  I only own 1 (Mille Bornes) which I've never played, and have only played 1 (Saboteur)

I got 16 in the end...   2,3,6,9,12,13,15,16,17,19,20,23,28,34,36,37

For those who asked how I found what I did find.  Google was no help (it kept bring up games with "standard" card decks).  Amazon actually was a pretty big help this time

Congrats to the winners!
