    I bought a pack of playing cards hoping to
    find pictures of Hungarian chess players......

    Instead I find a wonderful piece of treasure that has
    lain buried in a Nezhmetdinov game since 1948.

    it's not the Queen sac game. Mention Nezhmetdinov
    and everyone thinks of or shows the Queen sac game.
    (There is a Queen winning trap in it that RHP players delight in falling into.)

    My Knight sac in the Blackburne Trap may not be sound.
    (90% of my suggested sacs are probably unsound.)

    The RHP Hall of Horror which I'm thinking of calling Bela Lugossi's Favourite Games.

    The Rubik Cube, The Simpsons....

    Finally figured out the game for this pack of 33 cards.

    The key was actually Bela Lugossi.

    Printed on the top right corner of each card are symbols.
    A camera, a light bulb, musical notes etc.....
    But there is only one 'Dracula' symbol - Bela Lugossi's.

    So you deal out the entire pack and play then goes along the
    same lines as 'Old Maid' in the case the Maid being Bela Lugossi.

    You could do a Chess Players Pack running with the same
    'Old's Maid' idea. The symbol could be a national flag and
    the info could be a brief bio etc...

    But who would be the 'Dracula?'

    Russ, obviously. Among members here he's unique.
