101 Dalmatas card game by Naipes Fournier, 1995. The game is based on the animated movie about a litter of Dalmatian puppies which is abducted by Cruella de Vil who wants to make herself a new dalmatian skin coat. In spite of Cruella’s sociopathic intentions, it is almost a horror movie, but filled with so many laughs you have to love it. In the end the evil doers are punished and the cute puppies are safe.

The game contains four suits (colours) numbered 1 - 8 and is played as in Seven and a Half. See the Rules►

Rex's main interest was in card games, because, he said, they were cheap and easy to get hold of in his early days of collecting. He is well known for his extensive knowledge of Pepys games and his book is on the bookshelves of many.
His other interest was non-standard playing cards. He also had collections of sheet music, music CDs, models of London buses, London Transport timetables and maps and other objects that intrigued him.
Rex had a chequered career at school. He was expelled twice, on one occasion for smoking! Despite this he trained as a radio engineer and worked for the BBC in the World Service.
Later he moved into sales and worked for a firm that made all kinds of packaging, a job he enjoyed until his retirement. He became an expert on boxes and would always investigate those that held his cards. He could always recognize a box made for Pepys, which were the same as those of Alf Cooke’s Universal Playing Card Company, who printed the card games. This interest changed into an ability to make and mend boxes, which he did with great dexterity. He loved this kind of handicraft work.
His dexterity of hand and eye soon led to his making card games of his own design. He spent hours and hours carefully cutting them out and colouring them by hand.
