Like many children's card games of the later 19th century, The Game of Noah's Ark helped teach the lessons of the Old Testament story as it entertained children with a card game. The game is actually a version of Old Maid, with the odd card being the white kitten. However, the instruction explain that the winner of this game is the holder of that card, opposite to the play of Old Maid.
