that's My World, ABC Wednesday, Q for Quartet
To enlarge click on photos.
This is the German and Dutch equivalent of Happy Families, Go Fish or Authors. Many different designs of cards were made for this game in the late nineteenth and throughout the twentieth century, with various educational or other themes.
1.Quartet is played by three or more players.
2.The cards are shuffled and divided among the players.
3.Examine your cards; if you hold a complete set of four cards, lay these on the table.
4.The player on the right of the dealer asks any player if he holds a card needed to complete a set of four or a quartet.
5.If the player asked holds the card, he must surrender it, if not he becomes the one who asks for cards he needs to collect sets of four cards or quartets.
6. The winner is the player with the most quartets.
We often played Quartet with the children, with whom we used a far simpler set of cards when they were too young to read. My grand children in Australia liked the game as well.
