A few years ago, I found some more quartetts in a shop as they were getting rid of old stock, and I bought all they had (well, one of each kind). Most of them are technical quartetts, with the only exception of "Tiere aus aller Welt", that is a rather typical animal quartett, and whose cover card has a different design.
I already had some mini quartetts from FX Schmid, they were even presented in this blog a long time ago (see #197). Compared to those Mini Super Trumpfs, these have a different cover design, since they are a few years newer than the series that brought us the famous Horror and Spuk quartetts.
Interestingly, all other quartetts carry the same reference number: No. 56513.1, maybe because they were sold to retailers in one big package including quartetts of different themes. The "Animal" quartett does not have a reference nummer.
All quartetts are based in their "bigger brothers", and have been reduced in size, but also in number of cards, since this small decks count only 24 cards each (6 families instead of 8), plus cover card, and maybe some more with advertisements of other FX Schmid products.
The decks presented in this entry are:
Grand Prix (Formula 1)
Total Irre (Custom Cars and Vans)
Auf Achse (Trucks)
Tiere aus aller Welt
|Some of the boxes still have the price tag in. 16 Austrian Schilling.|
Note that Auf Achse is also a popular board game by the same company FX Schmid. It was awarded game of the year in Germany in 1987. See promotional card included in all quartett set except "Tiere aus aller Welt".
