Does anyone remember a board game where there were little bags of gold that you could go around and 'steal'?
It took me a while, but I finally found it in the book _Board Games_ by Desi Scarpone (a book for board game collectors). It is called "Hide 'n' Thief" and was made by Whitman in 1965. She lists it as going for $30-$40 dollars at year 2002 prices, but ... I couldn't find even one copy anywhere on the internet for sale. There is a guy selling replacement pieces, but not the whole game. :) So, good to know what it is called, but... acquiring a copy is still a challenge. I don't know if you are still looking for it, but I just found it on eBay. I remember playing this with my mom and brother, it was fun. Here is the link. http://toys.shop.eBay.com/items/?_nkw=Hide+'n'+Thief&_sacat=233&_ex_kw=&_mPrRngCbx=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_sop=12 If you didn't get that eBay copy, Don's Game Closet might be able to help you find a copy of Hide n' Thief game. Their customer service people are awesome. Here is a link to their website: http://www.donsgamecloset.com Boardgame Guy

Which Queen is depicted on playing cards?
The queen on a standard modern deck of Anglo-American playing cards depicts no one in particular, and is most likely a distorted version of older versions of European cards. Older sets of cards typically varied based on the origin of the card. Face cards typically depicted historical figures of religious or political importance. Source: Wikipedia

Where can you buy a copy of The Great Dalmuti?
Well, I just did a search and it looks like it might actually be in print again... saw it on Amazon for about $13 (November 2007). If you can't find it though, try used board game places like areyougame.com, boardgamegeek.com, and funagain.com. ... and of course, there is always eBay, if you can stand the wait and the risk.
