This entailed skimming tab playing cards alternately at different playing cards leaning up opposed to the wall. should you knocked one over, you scooped up all of the playing cards that had neglected the objective: then one other card used to be put up opposed to the wall and around used to be on. to determine those traces of ‘skimmers’ and their excessive focus was once like watching Northmoor’s model of one-armed bandits in Las Vegas. by the way, these tab playing cards, greater referred to as cigarette playing cards, got here in so much packets of cigarettes. They disappeared approximately fifty years in the past, if no more, and as cigarettes are usually not politically right I don’t envisage these significant academic cigarette playing cards coming again, more’s the pity. one other reminiscence of Northmoor’s is while, after university had ended someday, I dashed out into the pouring rain.
