September 28, 2014 Cactus Jack’s, Phoenix AZ
Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw
According to Moonalice legend, tonight’s poster by Chris Shaw depicts the original cactus jack … six-pointed suguaro that was the original Arizona version of the children’s game. Have you seen one of these before? I thought not. The Arizona game of cactus jacks quickly found a market in Phoenix — they used the 19th century equivalent of Kickstarter — but it ultimately got blown out by the non-prickly European game known as knucklebones. It happened so fast, it was as if cactus jacks never existed. But here we are tonight. Living proof that Cactus Jack’s lives on.
