New Cards

Two new cards for July 2012 and a new colourway for C166 – Collective Nouns for Animals. The Collective Nouns are from ‘The Sports and Pastimes of the People of England’ by Joseph Strutt which was first published in 1801, ‘ The Oxford English Dictionary’ and ‘A Crash of Rhinoceroses’ by Rex Collings

These cards appeal to the quiz buffs and our feedback suggests that many end up at pub quizzes.
