Game of Pussy and the Three Mice

board game

A clear copyright date of 1890 marks McLoughlin's Game of Pussy and the Three Mice. A simple race-type game, it appealed to younger children. In the late 19th century, printers often depict anthropomorphic animals, acting like humans. This seems especially true in the design of children's games.
