Description:
Games designed to teach geography were prevalent in Europe. This 19th century German version depicts a family playing the game on the cover, surrounded by peoples of the world. The object of this “lotto” game, which is similar to a modern-day Bingo game, was to fill each board, representing geographic locations, by collecting tiles or cards corresponding to those locales. These games not only imparted geographical knowledge, but also taught social, cultural, and natural science.
