We had a great time reading through all the stories you sent through. Funny animals, silly stories, heartwarming moments. Doesn't get much better than that! We'll continue sharing stories as we all navigate our ways through this crisis. And a free pack of cards will continue to be awarded to all those whose stories are chosen. (On this note: we absolutely love to hear from our "winners" that many of them are going to use their prize as a gift for loved ones. You guys!)
And now, for the good stuff. We hope you enjoy these stories (and pics!) as much as we did.
We have a beautiful box which is also a cribbage board that we take on our travels. Inside, we store our cat playing cards. Now that we are on our long staycation, we sojourn to the living room to have our afternoon game. It passes the time, although the cats tend to cheat at cards.

I got a lovely deck of popinjay cards, and twice a week I send one card to my friend in another city. When we finally get to "reopen, " we're going to play a game of cribbage. Meanwhile, each card has some hidden message (it's the "king of hearts bday or two owls are calling each other across the river) we create. Our lives have become so monotonous, this little game keeps us going, both to our mailboxes and to our creative imaginations.
My husband and I started a running quarantine rummy game with the cards I gave him as a St Nicholas Day present back in December!

So I have been wanting to buy a pack of cards from you guys for FOREVER! I absolutely love the art. Being quarantined was the perfect opportunity to do just that. I wanted to show some friends that my husband and I play games with that I purchased the Pack of Dogs deck. So when they came in, I excitedly shared videos with them of me opening it and showing the art! Only to then drop them all over the floor! My husband laughed at me but helped me pick them up.
