Hotch Potch is a card game to test the memory and teach the alphabet.
Hotch Potch uses playing cards that first appeared on a 1782 print created by Carrington Bowles in London, called “The Comical Hotch Potch or the Alphabet turn'd Posture-Master.” The image was used to teach 18th-century boys and girls the letters of the alphabet, and now it's a game for kids of any age!
