"Allegrando, the Musical Game" is an unusual late 19th century card game produced by the Theodore Presser Co. of Philadelphis, a music publisher. Though its instructions are lost, the individual cards are marked with different musical clef signs, in different time meters and keys. Did players name song titles from the cards? Or did they match similar song keys?
