Twain's Memory-Builder (etext.lib.virginia.edu)
1885 Mark Twain designed and patented a game intended to help people
keep historical facts straight. Curiously, his Memory Builder focused
specifically on European royalty. This game is based only loosely on
his (with some features borrowed from the Carmen San Diego series).
Its focus is on MT and his times.
The game is divided into four sections, each with eight
questions: two sections on Sam Clemens' life and MT's career,
and two on America between 1840 and 1910. There are plenty
of facts and dates, and also a lot of pictures. As you play, you may
also meet a few or a lot of MT's intimates and associates; they're here
to help you find the dates you're looking for. Good luck!"
