Godalming UK: Spinning Poodle Games are adding to their growing range of low-tech entertainment with a newly designed pack of 'Family Friendly Playing Cards', launching at  Spring Fair 2022. 

The deck is a standard deck of 52 cards, but with symbols and numbers that are more clearly differentiated from each other than a standard pack of cards.

Spinning Poodle Director Roger Coleman explains: "I have enjoyed playing card games for many years, but have often noticed that it's easy to make a mistake between the red suits and black suits. The symbols in a classic pack of cards aren't that different, and it is easy to mix them up, especially with younger or older players. I've noticed this can make them feel foolish and put them off playing. We've made a simple change that keeps the same symbols but uses solid colour for the spades and hearts and outlines for the clubs and diamonds, making it much easier to tell the difference between the four suits. We hope that these cards make it easier for younger players to start playing card games and keep older players playing for longer."

The cards are high quality, plastic coated linen finish cards supplied in a tuck box.
