The card game Authors originated in Salem, Massachusetts in 1861, first published by G. M. Whipple and A.A. Smith. Parker Brothers published a version in 1897. The simple matching type game encourages players to learn which author wrote specific titles. The player with the most matched sets of titles by each author at the end of the game wins. The "Artists" game is a variation on Authors, using artists and their famous paintings to make the matches. Variations such as this soon became common, and they still exist today.
