Pigs In Clover

game

ca. 1900

Toymaker Charles Crandall invented the game "Pigs in Clover" in 1889. While he waited for his patent, competitors brough out very similar versions of the game. Eventually Crandall's game, produced at his Waverly Toy Works, enjoyed great success and becamse something of a best-seller. But similarly-named games made by his competitors took away some of his profits. Pigs in Clover became the subject of political cartoons and rumor said that even president Harrison played the game.
