Roodles card game was devised by Arthur J Patterson the Rules►and copyrighted in 1912. The set contains 57 cards comprising 1-14 in each suit of wishbones, horseshoes, shamrocks and swastikas plus a Roodles joker card who juggles all the suit symbols. The game is played similar to Rummy and the aim is to get rid of all cards in hand. See
Patterson was an avid card player and in 1901 he invented a new game called “Flinch”, subsequently running the Flinch Card Company, Kalamazoo, to sell the game. Roodles was invented in 1912 and marketed by the same company.
