Hide & Seek with the Kings & Queens of England

First published in around 1865, when history meant learning the kings and queens, Jaques titled the 3 different games as Hide & Seek series 1 (William I - Richard II), Hide & Seek series 2 (Henry IV - Charles I) and Hide & Seek series 3 (Charles II - Victoria in the 1st edition or Edward VII in the 2nd edition). The first editions all had small pictures of the monarchs but the second editions had larger pictures in a more modern style looking like paintings. The game is played by players asking each other for the Event cards matching the King cards, completing sets, and so on. See the Rules
