In 1939 Parker Brothers published a card game that it called “Uncle Foster’s World’s Fair Game,” to be sold at the 1939 World’s Fair. It is a “Quartets” game (in the U.K., “Happy Families” and in the U.S. “Go Fish”), and features sets of 4 cards. The object of the game is to collect an entire set (or “family”) and the player collecting the most sets is the winner. This game consists of sets of cards depicting buildings at the Fair. I believe that the depictions are artist renderings, not photographs.

The set should have 13 sets of 4 cards, but one set (the “D” set) has only 3 of the 4. There is also an advertising card for Parker Bros. The cards are wide, measuring 89mm x 63mm. There is no box.

The cards are in excellent condition. They have been handled and there is very slight edge wear, but I do not believe that they have ever been used in a game.

Thanks for visiting.
