Game manufacturers often made combination board games and marketed them as good deals for consumers. McLoughlin Brothers of New York made many different examples. The firm's "Games of the Pilgrim's Progress, Going to Sunday School and Tower of Babel" all carried a Biblical theme. During the late 19th century gaming itself carried some negative connotations; many people thought it a waste of time. Biblical games, such as this example, helped teach Sunday school lessons. They appealed to some parents who might otherwise decline to purchase a game.
