Hi, Luke :)

Well, what you have there is almost a complete set of cards from the Cracker Jack card game ZOO ANIMAL for 2 to 4 players which came in book form. It is from a Cracker Jack Prize set of 20 different card games dated 1966.

There are 16 cards total in the game so 8 animals to make. The animals are: ZEBRA, HIPPOPOTAMUS, RHINOCEROS, ALLIGATOR, KANGAROO, ELEPHANT, LION and TIGER! :geek:
Sailor Jack and Bingo are on the back of each card in the game.

The condition of the cards tells me someone enjoyed playing this card game many times! 8-)
CJAAAJ :D

Luke, I think you should bring your zoo cards to the next convention. They would be a great happy hour activity. We could have a little drinkie and play a little cards. What fun!

The cards belong to someone else, and I believe will be shortly on eBay. I received an e-mail yesterday from someone asking about them. I didn't know the answer, but I knew where to look. :)

Would this prize come in a box of Cracker Jack, or was it something sold separately?

Crazy Eights
Dipsy Doodle
Farmer in the Dell
Fast Express
Go Fish
Gold Rush

I think playing the card games at a convention would be great fun! Enjoy! Gail
