Anonymous ‘Mr Chad’ card game, 1940s. Rudimentary artwork and graphics in b/w only due to wartime shortages and constraints. The aim of the game is to construct sentences such as “Wot not frients”, “Wot a life”, “Wot! only a million” or “So Wot”, etc. and score points accordingly. See the Rules►
‘Mr Chad’ was used in a humourous way to draw attention to the shortages after WW2. During this period of austerity things we take for granted were unobtainable. ‘Mr Chad’ would make us smile with such captions as "WOT! No Oranges?", "WOT! No Petrol?", or for the ladies, "WOT! No Stockings?".
