Learn about cheese, while playing a game! Whey fun.
Do you love cheese? We do as well.
WHAT'S THE IDEA
It is so much easier to learn about something when you are being entertained. Was your best teacher not the most entertaining one as well? Well, yeah!
We were simply playing a hand of Gin Rummy, munching on some cheese, when my son asked me where that cheese (Mahon) came from. That was pretty much it. Play cards, learn about cheese.
This Passport Edition (Curd Deck, as we like to call it) is a curation of cheeses from around the world.....and you can play a whole bunch of card games with them......and get some GOUDA (sorry) information at the same time.
Stinky Cheese Cards are simply a fun way to learn a little more about different cheeses.
No spades, hearts, diamonds or clubs..nope, Stinky Cheese cards have goats, cows, and sheep.
AND THE GAMES?
You can play STINKY RUMMY,
How about GO STINKY? (yes, it's Go Fish....."got any Greek Cheese?")
MY STINKY MEMORY. Great fun for a group hanging around the kitchen island having a glass of wine.
PLAY CHEESE WAR!!! At the end of the war, player that has no cards, or the fewest, is the victor! War is over. Have a beer.
OLD CHEESE - aka Old Maid. Basically, passing cards to the player to your left. When you have a pair, it goes to the side. Don't get stuck with the Stinky Joker!
Each card has interesting little factoids about the cheese.
A great gift for any cheese lover...or maybe someone that only has Jack and Colby in their fridge! Don't just bring a bottle of wine over to your friends' place.......Bring a deck!!
ALL WE ARE SAYING, IS GIVE CHEESE A CHANCE!
Hey, do you know what cheese is made backwards? EDAM!
You don't know Edam? Get some Stinky Cards!
Dear friends of cheese: PLEASE forward this to a friend in need of better cheeses in their refrigerator. And, when we get this deck going, I can work on the deck that has strictly American Artisan Cheese from the states.
Monies we raise here goes to the first printing, which is 1000 decks at almost 4 bucks a pop, a website, shipping supplies, and some green to my great graphics guy
(what cheeses are in, and sooooo many left out!)
