Another in the "game" series...

I found another game on-line at:
Caption: Le Bon Genre, 1811, "Guessing the Kiss".
This is linked to from page http://locutus.ucr.edu/~cathy/bg.html
These game illustrations are French and seem to be semi-satirically depicting "fast" young people, so one shouldn't imagine Jane Austen characters indulging in these, except maybe Lydia Bennet and John Thorpe ;-)
By the way, notice that there's always three girls and two guys in these scenes? (Not that I would be objecting )
