A very early and popular card game, Peter Coddle and His Latest Trip to New York, is seen here in the Improved Game version from 1900. This antique card game, from McLoughlin Bros. NY, is in great shape for its age!

More of a party or group amusement than a standard game, it involves one player reading a story. Other players, having drawn "cards," or slips of paper printed with nouns, fill in the blanks of the story as the reader arrives at them. Hilarity often results from the nonsensical story. Images of Peter on the game box cover present him as a country bumpkin astounded by the city sights. Mad Libs is a modern game which operates in a somewhat similar way.

The imagery on the box cover is wonderful; the cards (dozens!) are yellowed from age but are other wise in good shape. The box, cards, and playing instructions are all original.

A great find for an antique game/toy collector!
