all of our vintage goods are well loved & not perfect. Just like us.
➕ Game 1: Historical game: Fireside Series by McLoughlin Bros. This game was made in the 1890s & honestly we don't know how to play it. We were amazed when we started researching this & couldn't find anything like it. We're not sure, but it might be one of just a few that still exist. This game features state maps & information, we think it's missing it's game instructions. Deck measures 3.875" x 3.75" x 1"
➕ Game 2: Crossword Lexicon game: Manufactured in the 1940s by the Parker Bros. It was advertised as the "new Card Game Craze" & is a mix between scrabble & maybe Words with Friends? Game measures 4.875" x 3.375" x .75"
➕ Game 3: Educational Games - Fractions: Manufactured by the Cincinnati Game Co in the very early 1900s. This company made a series of these games, but in our searching we couldn't find another Fractions game. These are seriously rare & a game about math & it's got killer typography... what's not to like? Game measures 2.625" x 3.625" x 1"
➕ Game 4: Education Games - Our National Life: Manufactured by the Cincinnati Game Co in the very early 1900s. This company made a series of these games, but in our searching we couldn't find another Our National Life game. Each card has an illustration with historical information from the US. Gather your friends & fam & learn about how our history was written in the 1900s, we'll sure it will be enlightening & SO MUCH FUN. Game measures 2.625" x 3.625" x 1"
➕ Game 5: Education Games - Flags: Manufactured by the Cincinnati Game Co in the very early 1900s. This company made a series of these games, and in our searching we could find one other Flags game. The cards are still vibrantly colored & in wonderful condition. You've always wanted to memorize country flags (as they were in the 1900s) & here's your chance!! Game measures 2.625" x 3.625" x 1"
➕ Game 6: Rook: Manufactured in 1936 by Parker Brothers. It's the "Game of Games". Our box is intact & all the cards are in wonderful condition. There's a bird holding a deck of cards in its claws on each card. Our Camp Wandawega crows don't play cards, but maybe they used to? With all the gambling done on our grounds, they're sure to have gotten in on the action. Game measures 4" x 5.5" x .875"
