Cat in the Sack: Charming illustrated memory game by Alice Kolb

Embrace these charming illustrated cards for a memory game
called Die Katze im Sack (which literally translates
as “The Cat in the Sack”), created by Swiss illustrator and
graphic artist Alice Kolb.

Available to buy via
Büchergilde Gutenberg
, the game can be played with a
minimum of two players from the age of 10 years old. Behind
each illustration lies an expression that gives you a clue as
to what the drawing might be about. An idiom, if you will. Like
“The Cat in the Sack”, which means “a ruse, swindle, or
suspicious transaction”, according to The Free

With a bold colour palette of blue and orange, it’s an
eye-catching product from the Bern-based creative who studied
Visual Communication, Illustration and Art Teaching in Lucerne
and Strasbourg. Alice works with publishers, for clients and
agencies, and loves the odd side project too. You can discover
