Description of the game reminds me of Uta-garuta, a traditional Japanese game where one card is drawn that has a poem on it. While the poem is being read, players try to find from the cards on the table the one with the corresponding phrase. Surprisingly enough, it's also played competitively there.

I wonder if that's the inspiration for this one?

When I researched for my Book So spielt die Welt, I came across the same thought. I do own Jetzt fahrn wir übern See and I am very sure, it was inspired by Uta-garuta. Alex Randolph lived in Tokio for several years and surely came across the japanese traditional.
