J.H. Singer's card game Fox & Geese is a very game for children. A teetotum, or spinner, included with the game determines which numbered card a player may pick up. The player with the most cards in hand when all are distributed is the winner. Games such as this, dependent on the luck of the spinner, are called games of luck. Unlike many other games from the late 19th century, this game does not educate as one plays it. The only reference is in the game title, which is modelled after one of Aesop's fables.
