Well-used and incomplete early McLoughlin Bros. game known as the “Game of Nations.” The game features some of McLouglin’s best art work. There is an edition of this game from 1898 called. “Game of Nations or Quaker Whist” but this set makes no reference to Quaker Whist, and I think dates earlier.

There are 49 cards, 13 in each of 3 “suits,” and 10 cards in the “Africa” suit. The “Ace” of each “suit” is a map of a region of the world (i.e., Asia, Africa, the Americas, Europe), and each “suit” should have 9 number cards and three court cards, as in a normal deck of cards, with designs appropriate to the geographical region featured in that suit. In this set, the court cards of the Africa suit are missing. The cards are accompanied by the original instruction booklet, that explains how to play several McLoughlin Bros. games, including this one.

The cards are in no better than fair condition, with considerable wear and the problems you would associate with a 140 year old children’s game – creases, corner issues, wear, etc. The cards shown are representative of the set as a whole. The instructions are in good condition, but the box is poor – a mere remnant.

Thanks for visiting.
