We never tire of this quick, fun card game by @reposproduction.
Its always a good laugh, easy to teach to new players and I love the artwork. It's also one of my backup games that I pretty much always take with me incase we have a group of more than 7 of us as so few of the games we collectively own cater for more than 7 without being too long or too complicated for new players. And it fits in my handbag.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present Mascarade.
Today is #Ganjifa special! Originally from Persia, the game was adopted by the Mughals and popularised to the extent that the masses took to it too - especially during festive time! With time, to appeal to the Hindu population, cards were made with the Dashavatara design (10 avatars of Vishnu). Interestingly this craft is very rare now with hardly any practitioners left. This because back in 1930s, the printed versions started to fill the market. ♦️ Image 2: the printed version suited for the Persian market
♣️ Image 3: the ones that started becoming popular before the cards we know today took over ! ♠️ And finally when a couple of years ago, my team and I came up with the Rama-Sita-Hanuman-Ravana version of playing cards for Diwali. They sold like a bomb - okay, not literally but they were quite popular with our retailers and we totally enjoyed playing it internally at office ! Today the CM of UttarPradesh might have been pretty proud of it! Talk about merchandise 😉 !!! I love this Diwali without crackers...our kid-friends in the neighbourhood are quite excited about the new games we’re playing and hosting and it’s so much better than the smokey times! 😃😃♥️♣️♠️♦️ .
