The Boy Scouts of America was founded more than 100 years ago, in 1910. Just nine years later Parker Brothers of Salem, Massachusetts produced this Boy Scout-themed card game. A simple matching game, it really resembles the game of dominoes more than a card game. Players match one card at a time to the previous card laid down, either by nbumber or by suit and consecutive number. The first player to lose all cards is the winner, and cards still held in other players' hands count as points for him or her. The Boy Scouts organization took hold in a big way in American and doubtless this game was marketed towards Scouts and Scout groups.
