The Gourmet Game

Here's a predecessor for all those competitive cooking shows and restaurant makeover shows.

Each player has his own board, which is in the form of a menu. Dishes include classic haute cuisine and are name in English and French (you'll soon learn the French words and their correct pronunciation). Six cards are dealt to each player, and as a player takes new cards from the deck or does discarded by his opponents he gradually puts together a gourmet meal. To win, however, he must order the right dishes and beverages, and must prevent other players from ordering.

I'm thinking "Kaplan's Ideas & Designs" on the card is referring to Edgar Kaplan, the champion bridge grand master, author, team coach/captain, and publisher of The Bridge World magazine. He surely was around playing cards a lot.
