Yesterday my wife discovered a very cool card-based board game/art piece at a thrift store. After doing a little online research I found that it was for an old game called Jack Foolery (also known as One-Eyed Jacks, or Jack Off).
Further investigation revealed that it was once mass-marketed as a game called Sequence. So among my Google & Bing searches to learn more, I eventually visited eBay to see what a search for “sequence” resulted in.
I was stunned.
As it turns out, there are more people in the word who believe the word “sequins” is the same as “sequence” than there are available copies of this old board game.
