52 cards in 13 sets of four. They are all illustrated with characters from a specific country and they consist of, for example, Mr America, Miss America (both in colour) and a Mr America and a Miss America (not in colour). The object is to win tricks by the pairing of two cards relating to the same country. The pairs maybe a wedding pair, a pair of spinsters or a pair of bachelors. Each pair has a value in points. A 'Society' Wedding (the two coloured cards of a country scores 5 points. A 'Quiet' Wedding (The two non-coloured cards of a country or one with colour and one without) scores 3 points. A Pair of Spinsters or Pair of Bachelors (from the same country) scores 1 point. If you can collect all four cards from a country, you can score bonus points; Two Society Wedding Pairs 15 points; Two Wedding Pairs - no Society Wedding 10 points; Pair of Spinsters and a Pair of Bachelors 6 points.
The game play is interesting. Players draw a card and place it to start to form rows of cards face-up. Five such cards are permitted in a row. If two cards from the same country 'touch' each other (vertically, horizentally or diagonal) then that pair is taken by the player. If a pair is taken the remaining cards are moved to the left of their row. If a card reaches the left end of a row and needs to be moved it is added to the right end of the row above.
Play several hands and the first player to reach 100 points is the winner.
A solitaire variant is also reccomended in the rules.
Undated but it was probably in Austerity Britain in the 1950's (The rules say that there are only limited numbers of the game available, due to quota restrictions).
