The card games of Happy Families and Snap which Jaques invented in the 1880's consist of a set of picture cards, featuring illustrations from the original 19th century designs of Sir John Tenniel. Both decks come in one attractive solid Black Walnut box with a cream natural leather lining.
Few games companies can claim to have been so influential as Jaques of London has been for the 215 years we have been manufacturing high quality sports and games equipment. In our two centuries of business, we have invented croquet, Ping Pong, ludo, snakes and ladders, Tiddledy Winks and - perhaps the games most synonymous with the Jaques' name - Happy Families and Snap which we invented in the 1880's. With illustrations by Sir John Tenniel, chief illustrator of 'Punch' magazine and the original artist for Lewis Carrolls Alice in Wonderland, the instantly recognisable faces of Mr Grits the Grocer, Mr Bun the Baker and all the other families have made Happy Families into a worldwide success. Similarly, his fantastic characters on the fast paced game of Snap have captured the imagination of children for over a century. Easily played by people of all ages, these vividly imagined characters are still extremely popular, more than a hundred years later. Jaques' Happy Families and Snap consists of two packs of high quality matte laminated cards with the original designs lovingly recreated for your playing pleasure, presented in a solid Black Walnut case with a cream natural leather lining.

Walnut Case: 14.5cm x 11cm x 4cm
Snap Cards: 8.5cm x 5.5cm
Happy Family Cards: 8.5cm x 5.5cm
