Although Baptist fundamentalists wouldn’t ever dream of touching regular playing cards, they do still love card games; and one of the perennial favorites is Dutch Blitz. After all, anybody can see the game is wholesome just by looking at it. There are primary colors and pictures of modestly dressed Amish children.Â Instead of evil hearts and clubs,Â benign-looking farm implements grace the backs of the cards.
Without even the remote chance of the appearance of evil, this card game has been used at youth outings, christian college campuses, and church picnics almost since it was invented in the 1950’s. As the saying goes, “if it’s from the 50’s it’s just plain better.”
