Universal Monsters: Old Maid

Back in 1964 Milton Bradley added creepy to Old Maid by releasing a set of cards featuring the Universal Monsters. The age range for the game is children 5 to 10.

Nineteen monster-themed cards are included in the set with an additional instruction card. Characters in the set include Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, a werewolf, The Phantom of the Opera, The Mummy, Dracula’s Daughter, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and a teenage werewolf. The cards measured 3-1/2″x5-6/8″. The backs all had a spider web with the word “MONSTER” written horizontally across it.

One would think the Bride of Frankenstein would be the Old Maid but she isn’t. She’s included in the set but it’s Dracula’s Daughter who is the featured star of the game There are 2 cards of each monster in the set except for the Dracula’s Daughter who has only one.

This makes a great collectible and isn’t too expensive on eBay if you can find one. If you have children it’s a great game to play with them on a Saturday afternoon in October.
