Jaques has invented some of the worlds most loved and popular games, including Snakes and Ladders, Happy Families and Tiddledy Winks.
It is of no surprise that the company that invented Happy Families has been passed down, father to son, for seven generations.
The distinctive illustrations that adorn a packet of Jaques Happy Families were drawn by Sir John Tenniel, famously chief cartoonist at Punch and illustrator of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.
Pachisi, a precursor of Jaques Ludo, was played by the Mughal emperors of India using costumed dancers instead of pieces.
