Published in the early 1910s and before World War I, the Game of Doctor Quack is a family reading and party game best played by a group of people. Published by the Russell Manufacturing Company, the Game of Doctor Quack requires that one player reads a printed story. The 32 story line cards are shuffled to the remaining participants who must use a prep-printed phrase of one of the cards received. The game play results in nonsensical humor all around. Quirky yet entertaining this game is.
The box shows mild signs of wear with one of the corners and edges of the box bottom spilt. However, the box top graphics of Doctor Quack remain colorful and clear. The cards are in great condition, though some are a bit yellowed with age. The instructions (or storyline sheet) are in great condition also.
Though the Game of Doctor Quack makes for great play at a party or for a night of family entertainment, the real value of this card game is its antiquity. For collectors of antique American games and toys, this card game is a treasure.
