A Card Game of Cape Cod Folklore
Gather around the campfire with this game of
strategy using Cape Cod’s spookiest entities as pawns—altogether 52 of
the peninsula’s scariest and most famous pirates, ghosts, witches, and
indigenous spirits, calling upon their mastery of nature to defeat your
opponent(s). Boldness, skill, and timing are needed to enter a
mysterious realm populated by a host of weird creature drawn from the Cape’s eerie legends, history, and lore.
More than another mysterious, family
card game, the lore and history of the Cape
are spelled out for children to learn about the different folkloric
characters and legends of the sandy peninsula. They’ll become familiar
with Old Stormalong, Maushop
and other “tall tales” that have been passed down over generations.
Just as Paul Bunyan was a symbol of
the Northwest (lumberman), waterbeings,
mermaids, one-eyed witches, spirit lights, phantom pirates, and bearded
sea serpents are among the fabled cast of symbols from Cape Cod’s rich tradition of storytelling.
This one-of-a-kind card game is the
result of a collaboration between the authors
of Cape Encounters: Contemporary
Cape Cod Ghost Stories and talented Osterville illustrator Ethan Renoe.
