game that was great in the early nineties
. The object of the game is similar to the license plate game
in the States, to collect points and pass the time while around cars.
While in the car or walking around a German city, friends call out "Käfer" upon sight of a Volkswagen beetle and "Ente" upon sight of a Citroen 2CV-the funny looking old French car. A tally of the points is compared at the end of the day.
A friend and I kept a multi-hundred tally going during the month I went to school in Mannheim. I won, of course.
