Noah’s Ark Card Game

Noah's Ark family card game, first published by De la Rue for Gibson’s Games in c.1905, involves collecting matching sets of animals - father, mother, and the baby – which are placed face upwards and said to have entered the ark. There are 17 sets in total, each with different point values, plus a single card representing Noah, who plays a decisive role in the game. The antique chromolithographic illustrations of farm and zoo animals, which in their day helped to teach the Old Testament worldview, have been re-printed several times. See the Rules
