Like so many other late 19th century games by Parker Brothers and other makers, the American Eagle Educational Series Worlds History card game is first educational, and then entertaining. McLoughlin had its own type of questioning game, under the "Grandmama's" series titles. The play is generally simple, players answer questions printed on cards correctly and win the cards. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins. Games such as these were doubtless marketed towards parents and teachers.
