Comments: Invented 1993 by Anders Jeppsson and Anders Pålsson. 
The game of the year in Sweden 1994. 
With more than 3 players, it's getting a bit long drawn-out, but it's unusal good at 2-3 persons.
To make it easier, you can avoid images with persons. Particular if the players are young.
(I don't know the English name of the game.)
