Published in the early 1950s by Whitman, the Santa Claus Christmas Card Game is a card-matching family game for younger children. The object of the game is for each player to create pairs of matching Christmas images. The player holding the Santa Claus card at the end of the game is declared the winner. Images include holiday bells, candles, ornaments, carolers, reindeer, and Christmas trees.
Santa Claus Christmas Card Game comes in its original plastic case, holding 40 holiday cards and one rules card. The case is in good vintage condition, free of cracks, though it does have many scratch marks from years of use. The card illustrations are quite charming and bright, reminiscent of holiday images of yore. The cards, including the rules card, are not marred by creases, tears, frayed edges or yellowing. The back side of each card bears the image of Santa Claus on a snowy evening.
Santa Claus Christmas Card Game will provide an evening of great family holiday entertainment as well as be a unique holiday gift for a young child. For those who collect vintage card games or Christmas memorabilia, the Santa Claus Christmas Card Game makes for a delightful addition to such collections.
