Description Edit | History

Chook Chook was a popular card game during the early part of the 20th century.

The game was advertised as being "A Splendid Educational Parlor Game for Younger Children and Grown-ups. Interesting, Instructional and Amusing".

In detail, according to the games directions:

"This game is virtually a business trading account between players, their stock being various breeds of fowls, the eggs from which at varying prices count in the competition. The player who makes the most money during 12 months being the winner.

"As there are seven breeds of fowls, there should be seven players, but a lessor number can play if a corresponding number of breeds are taken out of the pack first, leaving in only one breed for each player. Fowl Feed cards also must be one short of the number of players. All the accessory cards are left in.

"The accessory cards are introduced as they affect the game and add greater interest to it.

"With seven players the whole pack is wanted, consisting of 35 fowl cards, 14 accessory cards and 12 sitting cards".

The game seems to be of Australian origin. A web-article by Victoria Museum noted that old Australian newspapers are peppered with advertisements for the game.
