Desperanto

One of a series of ‘Desperanto’ language tuition games published by Qui Vive Ltd, Sandhurst, Kent, c.1990s. The court cards are hand-drawn versions of the standard English pattern. The number cards repeat the same design for each value in a different language (spades are in English, Hearts in French, Diamonds in Spanish and Clubs in German), facilitating learning some basic words from other languages, maybe smalltalk...
