The game's creators may have actually created this when homesteading in Southeast Colorado during or shortly after WWI. Grace Hauk Gilman was my grandmother, Arsina Hauk her sister/my great aunt. Both were teachers in southeast Colorado and just across state lines in Oklahoma and New Mexico on the 1920 census. My father was born in 1921 in California and Arsina went to New York early in the 1920s where she worked as a commercial artist for 10-15 years, before moving to California to teach high school art. In the 1930s, Grace earned a masters degree in English as USC and then taught high school English.

Our family has never actually seen this game, and would like to own a copy if it wasn't too expensive.
