For many people, the holidays are a lonely time. Separated from family, isolated from friends. What better way to deal with the holiday blues than a good game of solitaire! For $3.95 you can get a clear playing board and a booklet with 150 Ways To Play Solitaire. No longer do you have to be “confined to one old favorite way of playing.”
Other great Christmas ideas from Meredith’s of Evanston include an playing cards, an automatic card shuffler, a mini slot machine, and foam bridge-chair slipcovers (for those who do have friends). Wishing for more? There’s a Magic Eight Ball. Or calculate the odds with a handheld “Precision Adding Machine” made in West Germany.
This particular catalog was sent from Evanston Illinois to an address in the wilds of New Mexico — the address was “Farley N Mex” and nothing more — so perhaps Solitaire would be just the entertainment they needed to get them through the long winter.
