Few games companies have been as influential in the manufacture of family games over the last two hundred years as Jaques of London. Since the outset in 1795, this very old family firm have invented Croquet, Ping Pong, Ludo, Snakes and Ladders, Tiddley Winks and the card games of Happy Families and Snap, invented in the 1880's. With illustrations by Sir John Tenniel, chief illustrator of 'Punch' magazine and the original artist for Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland, the instantly recognizable faces of Mr Grits the Grocer, Mr Bun the Baker and all the other families have made Happy Families into the very popular family game it is today. Similarly, his fantastic characters on the fast paced game of Snap have captured the imaginations of children for over a century! Easily played by people of all ages, these vividly imagined characters are still very popular today, more than a hundred years later! The lovely Mahogany cased Happy Families and Snap set consists of two packs of matte laminated cards with the original designs lovingly recreated for your playing pleasure, whilst presented in a beautifully made solid Mahogany case, lined with a green baize finish.
