There are 33 cards - they are numbered and the highest is 129. (Believed to be 144 as V&A has the answers to riddle cards that from the description sound to be like these) Although they all have the same patterned backs there is a variation in size and a couple look very foxed.

Riddle Cards - Condition / Cards good, a couple foxed / (33/144) / No rules or box
