This fashionable parlour game was played at social gatherings over a century ago. The text of this antique game has been reproduced without alteration, so it is as amusing today as it was in earlier times:
YOUR CONDITION IN OLD AGE
1. You will be lively and cheerful.
2. You will be respected.
7. You will be a dyspeptic snuff-taker.
The simple rules: The leader of the game retains the cards of Destiny and request each member of the party to draw a numbered Soothsayer card. In rotation, players call out the number on their Soothsayer card. The leader reads the Destiny card along with the answer that corresponds to the number given by the player. Of course there are many of each cards - including one that reads:
WHAT WILL BE THE CONSEQUENCE IF I MARRY ?
Whatever the outcome for any of the players, we're pretty sure you'll have lots of fun. And, the graphics are just terrific! The cards arrive in a beautiful slipcase for safe keeping measuring 2-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches.
