Quarrelsome Neighbours – Trade Card

Quarrelsome Neighbours - Trade Card

Quarrelsome Neighbours – Trade Card Trade cards were one of the most popular forms of advertising during the 1800’s and were used to promote anything from dry goods to clothing stores. Sam Loyd was approached by a number of organizations who wanted to use his puzzles to promote their goods and since he owned his own printing press he would design and print these cards. Since they were giveaways many have not lasted the hundred plus years since they were created and so The Sam Loyd Company has opened its archives to make these cards once again available in their original form just the way Sam Loyd made them way back. Can you show how the quarrelsome neighbors never cross paths again? The cardboard that Sam Loyd used for his puzzle cards was specially selected by him. He wanted to ensure that it had the right balance of texture and thickness, to not only enhance his graphics, but to also give you the best in-hand embellishment when holding the card to solve it. The Sam Loyd Company has been able to recreate that same cardboard, as first used by Sam Loyd, using original sources. The cardboard is exclusively manufactured for our use and goes by the product code No.1868, in tribute to the release of the very first puzzle card. To ensure that you experience the puzzle cards just the way Sam Loyd intended you to, be sure to buy only cards created by The Sam Loyd Company. Each carry the Sam Loyd logo, which is a registered trademark and your guarantee of the highest quality.

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
