    We just bought a home and it has a big ole barn with tons of stuff left in it from the previous owners. I found several boxed card games with dates ranging from 1885 to 1943.
    The one called game of signs is of particular interest as its a bit of a mystery. I couldn't find any info on it online at all so if anyone is familiar please do fill me in! I'm very curious for instance if all the cards are present as this game in particular was scattered around a bit. The first picture shows all the games I found. The rest are of my mystery game showing some of the game if signs cards front and backs. I could not find any copyright dates in the box. The card art and lack of any coating makes me think pre 1900. Plus there is no milton bradley logo.

      I found "the game of signs" in my book, ca.1890, 32 colored litho cards pertaining to omens and superstitions, instructions on back of box. My book is from 1986, at that time valued at $20.00.

      Also, my book is-WARMAN`S ANTIQUE AMERICAN GAMES 1840-1940.

      Thanks!! That helps me a lot. I think I only counted 31 cards so I might be missing one.
      I'll look into that book if yours.
      The year tracks with what I thought too.
