    Description

    The game consists of eight puzzles of houses representing different architectural styles popular in American history. There is a series of games for different age levels, all designed to familiarize players with these architectural styles.

    From the rules:
    "GOOD OLD HOUSES is a series of games about American architecture. The objective in all the games is to entertain while building an awareness of some basic architectural styles. The houses in this set are illustrations of general styles rather than portrayals of specific, existing buildings. (Neighborhood houses seldom show all the style traits illustrated here. In some houses only a single feature makes a style recognizable, while in others there is a mixture of style traits.) The range of styles, from Federal to Bungalow, isn't intended to encompass the breadth of American architectural history, but to represent the basic building styles most frequently employed between the late 18th and early 20th centuries when the greatest thrust of settlement and urban development occurred in the United States. After playing the games in GOOD OLD HOUSES, players will be more observant of houses in their own neighborhoods and better able to describe what they see.

    "The eight house puzzles (12 pieces per puzzle) are used in four different games for 2 to 8 players. The games are divided into three levels determined by age: under 8, 8 and over, 10 and over."
