Fun for the whole family

As a big Trivial Pursuit fan, I really like these Instructive Conversation Cards, which I suppose were the closest thing the early 19th century had to offer. It’s unfortunate, though, that the very first fact they offer about Samuel Johnson is wrong; he was born in 1709, not 1706. (Either that or we’re way behind on the planning for the tercentenary symposium)
