44 Years of Stuff: Illustrated Mythology Cards

I love mythology and I love card decks, so it was a no-brainer to pick this up at an antique show in Ohio about 10 years ago for a cool 10 bucks. The Cincinnati Game Company was cranking out a lot of themed educational sets around the turn of the century. An ad card inside mentions almost two dozen others, including “Strange People,” “In Castle Land” (famous castles of the Old World), “The Mayflower” and “Yellowstone.”

I have a similar set of cards which was given to me because I love Greek mythology. My set isn't as impressive as yours as it is merely a replica printed in Hong Kong for the Merrimack Publishing Corporation possibly in the 1960's.
It was really interesting for me to find out from your blog where the set originated from.

The only problem I have is that the instructions are missing ( the set was secondhand) and I have no idea how to play the game!
