Hood's Spelling School and Other Games

card game

Hood's Spelling School card game is simply a version of Anagrams. The game has printed letters for players to make words. C.I. Hood & Co. was the maker of Hood's Sarsaparilla, a drink that tasted like root beer and was considered a health tonic at that time. Hood was famous for his advertising campaigns and gimmicks, as well as for his product. This card game is evidence of one of his advertising ploys. One famous slogan was "If made by Hood it's good."
