Though this game lacks its original box, the Game of the City Traveller is a party game, based on another popular card game called Peter Coddle. In that game, one leader reads a story and other players add words, read from cards, when the reader reaches a blank in the story. Obviously, nonsensical humor follows this kind of play. In the City Traveler version, each of the other players must also assume a role--in this case of different nationalities of people. If these players then read their words in a silly accent the game took on even more nonsensical fun.
