Game of the Willow Pattern Plate
A Card Game
Originally published in eighteenth century Britain, this parlour game incorporates the tragic Chinese tale of the The Long Weeping Willow, interpreted in a skewed fashion that was typical of the time. The story centers on a lovely young girl who angers her father when she rejects wealthy suitors in favor of a poor peasant boy. Each of the cards is numbered from 1 to 30. The object of the game is to make a Tchin. A Tchin is made when the numbers on the cards amount to 1, 11, 21, 31, or 41. Scoring 51 makes a Tchin-Tchin, or double.
Reproduced from the original vintage game.
