The Embossing Co. of Albany, NY produced "Flapper Fortunes," a fortune-telling game, in 1929. The concept is simple: roll the blocks like dice and "read" the fortune based on rules included with the instructions. Flapper Fortunes features Art Deco-inspred block and package designs. Rather than children, the game likely targeted adult players, like many other fortune-telling games.
