Vic Joc de Cartes, c.1990, a Souvenir Quartet game
Vic Joc de Cartes is a happy families quartet game, printed and published in Vic, (Osona, North East Spain), c.1990.
This game cleverly combines two purposes, 1. to promote the cultural attractions of the city of Vic, and 2. to serve as an entertaining card game for a wide age group.
The publishers have expressed their wishes, on the extra card which accompanies the pack, to provide visitors to the city with an engaging souvenir which also teaches about Vic's wealth of historical, artistic and traditional heritage whilst providing an entertaining and educational game of cards.
Above: Vic Joc de Cartes, happy families quartet game, printed and published in Vic, (Spain), c.1990. 42 + 1 extra card, square corners, in box.
The game is organised into seven categories, or families: Architecture; Sculpture; Episcopal Museum; Cathedral; Town Council; Information Media and Traditions.
Each card lists the remaining cards comprising the set, and the objective of the game is for each player, by luck or intuition, to ask other players for cards that hopefully will complete one or other of his or her sets.
If the other player does not possess the requested card, the turn moves to the next player, and so on.
