  <mods:abstract>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.</mods:abstract>
  <mods:note>A game similar to bingo in which players match drawn countries against capitals printed on their cards, with the goal of forming a line on their card. Includes directions, cardboard game box, 16 cards (9 x 22 cm.), and 90 calling cards (3 x 3 cm.). Cards consist of an engraved vignette and 30 squares, 20 of which (in 4 rows of 5) contain the names of capitals and relevant statistics. Calling cards are printed with the name of a country and relevant statistics.</mods:note>
