Dave the Klutz has done it again.

He has dropped one of his drawers full of card games.

Your job is to match each of the 40 cards with its correct title. Good luck!

 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. 

Here it is. I know I was slapping my forehead on a few. :)

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!
