Famo

Famo cards represent famous characters and events from history. The game was possibly originated by Kum-Bak Games in the late 1930s, although never issued by Kum-Bak, when an early rules booklet credits Alf Cooke as publisher. See early Rules Booklet

In 1939 Pepys took over Kum-Bak card games and all successive editions of Famo were published by Pepys Games. See later Booklets
