About this deal

Above: RIO RITA radio talkie-musical double set of ‘Cir-Q-Lar’ playing cards manufactured by John Waddington Ltd in a padded box, c.1929. Note that the Old Frizzle printed for De La Rue always had By His Majesty's letters patent printed at the foot. This is a reference to William IV's granting the patent in 1831, but it does NOT mean that the cards are necessarily from his reign. The patent was proclaimed on the De La Rue AS throughout the Old Frizzle period until 1862. Reynolds' own AS, designed after 1862, was modelled closely on Old Frizzle, so do watch out for the differences. One obvious one is MANUFACTURED BY above the design rather than DUTY ONE SHILLING as on Old Frizzle. The one illustrated is for REYNOLDS & SONS (1862-1882); REYNOLDS & Co. instead means it dates at the earliest to 1882, when the firm changed its name, shortly before being taken over by Goodall.

The small number of puzzles, combined with them being limited editions, has made these puzzles highly collectable.

[2] In 1941, the British Directorate of Military Intelligence section 9 (MI9) had the company create a special edition of Monopoly for World War II prisoners of war held by the Germans. [3]

After 1940 the slimline cards disappeared, but were resurrected again after the war with Goodall courts (see below for the illustration). Hidden inside these games were maps, compasses, real money and other objects useful for escaping. They were distributed to prisoners by fake charitable organisations. [4]For a short period in the late 1960s and early 1970s Waddington made cards for gambling casinos. They were oversize, had redrawn Paris pattern courts and are found with and without English indices. The courts are coloured with either blue or green. The finish was not always up to standard and were probably not good to play with. The one below is anonymous, though usually the name was on the AS and the shield of the JC. [Not in Berry.] Churchill requested that playing card manufacture be maintained at any cost, so as to provide distraction during the endless hours of boredom in the trenches.
